Newton Medical Center (NMC) was awarded accreditation by Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP), the nation’s original independent, accreditation program recognized by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Accreditation confirms that NMC is providing high quality care as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.
“Newton Medical Center clearly demonstrates a commitment to quality and patient safety,” said Meg Gravesmill, CEO of AAHHS, HFAP’s non-profit parent company. “We base our decision on the findings of an extensive and thorough onsite review of the hospital against recognized national standards for patient safety, quality improvement, and environmental safety. Newton Medical Center has earned the distinction of HFAP accreditation through its performance in successfully meeting those standards.”
“We’re proud to achieve this prestigious accreditation,” said Val Gleason, NMC President & CEO. “Earning HFAP accreditation is a significant achievement that recognizes our commitment to providing outstanding care to our patients and our community. In fact, quality is consistently the priority focus in our strategic plans and goals.”
