Hospital awarded accreditation
SUNSHINE Coast Hospital and Health Service has received accreditation from the Australian Council of Healthcare Standards.
Accreditation is a formal review process based on standards and processes developed by health care professionals for health care services.
It is public recognition of achievement of accreditation standards, demonstrated through an independent external peer assessment.
ACHS Chief Executive Officer Dr Christine Dennis said SCHHS was undergoing a significant transformational journey including settling into Sunshine Coast University Hospital.
“Despite this huge level of complexity, throughout the process staff demonstrated they were uniformly proud of their organisation and the care they provide,” Dr Dennis said.
“The enthusiastic executive team and experienced board have a strong focus on providing safe, quality care to patients, both patient outcomes and patient survey results reflect this,” Dr Dennis said.
