Welcome to the CIHQ Hospital Accreditation Program

For Hospitals Not Participating in Medicare

Hospitals that want to participate in our program must be in compliance with our standards and requirements.
As a deemed-status provider, CIHQ provides hospitals with the tools and support they need to successfully achieve accreditation. CIHQ's philosophy and approach to accreditation is to engage with hospitals in a collegial, respectful, and educational manner; while assuring services are provided at a reasonable cost.
Please take a moment to review our standards, survey procedures, and policies.
We would be happy to answer any questions you have.
"CIHQ surveyed our hospital survey in August 2015, and met every expectation of a highly valid survey. The CIHQ website provided resources for preparation and planning, assuring a smooth process throughout the survey. The surveyors demonstrated their professional knowledge about CMS standards and interpretation throughout the survey as well as providing recommendations and suggestions for ongoing compliance. CIHQ deemed status survey process was simply outstanding!"
