UnityPoint Health - Finley Hospital Receives Hospital Accreditation from DNV

by -

UnityPoint Health - Finley Hospital was recently accredited by DNV.

UnityPoint Health - Finley Hospital is excited to announce its successful completion of its new accreditation process from DNV. By earning this accreditation, Finley Hospital has demonstrated it meets or exceeds patient safety standards (Conditions of Participation) set forth by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

"At Finley Hospital, we pride ourselves on obtaining and upholding the highest patient safety standards," said UnityPoint Health - Dubuque President and CEO Chad Wolbers. "With this hospital accreditation from DNV, we are reaffirming our commitment to provide our patients with a high level of care in a safe and effective manner."

DNV's accreditation program is the only one to integrate ISO 9001 - the world's most trusted quality management system used by performance-driven organizations around the world to advance their quality and sustainability objectives.

"We have taken an entirely different approach to accreditation, and hospitals are really responding," said DNV Healthcare USA Inc. President Kelly Proctor. "Since accreditation is a must-have credential for just about every hospital in the country, why not make it more valuable, and get more out of it? That's where ISO 9001 comes into play and turns the typical get-your-ticket-punched accreditation exercise into a quality transformation."

DNV's accreditation program, called NIAHO® (Integrated Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations), involves annual hospital surveys - instead of every three years - and encourages hospitals to openly share information across departments and to discover improvements in clinical workflows and safety protocols.
