Hospice Brazos Valley Receives Chap Accreditation
Posted on 01/07/2013
Bryan, Texas…The Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP) has approved continued accreditation for Hospice Brazos Valley.
Along with Medicare/Medicaid certification, CHAP publicly certifies that Hospice Brazos Valley has met or exceeded the highest standards of excellence for home and/or community based health care. According to Manager of Program Integrity, Stephanie Ramirez, “no other hospice in our service area is CHAP accredited.”
CHAP accreditation happens every three years and there are hundreds of standards, which must be met to be accredited. According to a CHAP site visitor, “our methods for managing patient care and our administrative techniques are extremely reliable.” CHAP is an independent, non profit accrediting body and is the first accrediting body for community-based health care organizations.
