CIHQ congratulates
Sayre Community Hospital
on achieving accreditation!
"Our experience with CIHQ for initial accreditation was unparalleled. While others’ survey processes can seem counter-intuitive, CIHQ’s goal for the survey matched our facility’s: to ensure we provide safe, excellent care to our patients. We are very thankful for their kindness, professionalism, and prompt responses throughout the process!."
Melissa Hampton, Director of Quality
