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.
