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 The Champion Center
on achieving accreditation!
"CIHQ has been a refreshing change to our accreditation process. Their staff are very knowledgeable of CMS regulations and at the end of the survey process you have had a meticulous evaluation of your compliance performed in a very professional and collaborative manner. It is what an accreditation survey should be. Additionally, they are the most responsive organization we have experienced to questions that arise throughout the year. CIHQ is fantastic!"
Jim Raggio, Chief Executive Officer The Champion Center
