What CIHQ Accredited Hospitals Are Saying!
"The accreditation and survey process with CIHQ is far and away the best I have experienced in my 45+ years in healthcare. The collaboration and teaching is so appreciated!

Spring Hospital
"The survey was both fair and informative. It was obvious from the beginning that the surveyors were knowledgeable, wanted to help us, but were also thorough. Surveys are never "enjoyable" per se, but this team was both enjoyable and helpful as we went through the survey process. This was a definite change from the organization that had performed our previous survey. We were overall very pleased."
Curtis Powell, VP of Quality and Compliance
Siskin Hospital for Physical Rehabilitation

Thank you CIHQ!"
