Welcome to the CIHQ Hospital Accreditation Division
The Center for Improvement in Healthcare Quality (CIHQ) is the nation's newest accreditation provider approved by CMS to deem acute care hospitals as meeting Medicare Conditions of Participation.
Our program strives to ensure that patients receive care in organizations that exceed minimum standards set forth by the federal government.
We are committed to helping hospitals improve the quality of care rendered in their community by providing the tools and support they need in a collegial, respectful, educational, and cost-effective manner.
CIHQ congratulates Val Verde Regional Medical Center
on achieving accreditation!
"We made the change to CIHQ so that we could spend more of our budget and time providing care to patients instead of doing paperwork to meet "standards". The staff actually enjoyed this survey due to the wonderful teaching that accompanies the survey process. Even though a lot of issues were identified we were able to address them and know that we were now meeting all of the required standards to give safe quality care to our patients. I would highly recommend using CIHQ as the accreditation provider for any facility"
