Release Date: 06/25/2018

Inland Hospital, a member of EMHS, was recently awarded accreditation by Healthcare Facilities Accreditation program (HFAP), the nation’s original independent, accreditation organization recognized by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Accreditation confirms that Inland Hospital is providing high quality care as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.

“Inland Hospital clearly demonstrates a commitment to quality and patient safety,” said Lawrence Haspel, DO, Chairman of the Bureau of Healthcare Facilities Accreditation. “We base our decision on the findings of an extensive and thorough on-site review of the hospital against recognized national standards for patient safety, quality improvement, and environmental safety. Inland Hospital has earned the distinction of HFAP accreditation through its performance in successfully meeting those standards.”

“We are very proud to achieve this prestigious accreditation,” said Angela Gibbs, Vice President of Quality for Inland Hospital. “The accreditation is a recognition of our staff’s commitment to putting patients first, and our goal to provide the safest, most caring environment for our community. It’s a priority for us every day.”
