Achieving accreditation is a process where healthcare organizations demonstrate compliance with national standards. Accreditation by ACHC reflects an organization’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that facilitate a higher level of performance and patient care. ACHC is a not-for-profit organization that has stood as a symbol of quality and excellence since 1986.


“This was no small task,” said Kelly. “It involved a number of modifications that included participation from our on-site pharmacy staff, as well as a number of resources including, IT, compliance, HR, finance, and a dedicated project manager to navigate through all of the requirements.”
