In 2019, GCMH pursued an accreditation process with DNV Healthcare, and was accredited in November, 2019.
In addition, all acute care hospitals throughout the United States participate in a patient survey process created by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). This HCAHPS survey (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) measures patients' evaluations of their hospital care.
GCMH results are available at https://www.medicare.gov/hospitalcompare/search.html?
. Eligible adult patients are surveyed after hospital discharge and the results displayed represent four consecutive calendar quarters. Unfortunately, there is a time lag of the CMS published HCAHPS survey results but GCMH is dedicated to making all information available to our patients.
