Dallas, TX (PRWEB) August 22, 2017
Mississippi hospice care provider, Sta-Home, an AccentCare, Inc. company, has been accredited by the Community Health Accreditation Program, Inc. (CHAP). This demonstrates that Sta-Home meets the industry’s highest nationally recognized standards for hospice services. Through rigorous evaluation, CHAP focuses on structure and function, quality of services and products, human and financial resources and long-term viability.
Sta-Home’s four hospice locations in Mississippi, along with AccentCare’s nine other hospice locations in Texas, California, Tennessee and Colorado, are all CHAP accredited. Sta-Home was acquired by AccentCare in March of this year.
“We are proud to add our Mississippi hospice locations to our list of CHAP-accredited offices,” said AccentCare CEO Steve Rodgers. “AccentCare has maintained this accreditation since 2013, a testament to the high quality of compassionate care that our organization delivers to patients.”
CHAP is an independent, nonprofit accreditor for community-based healthcare organizations. Through “deeming authority” granted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), CHAP has the regulatory authority to survey agencies providing home health, hospice and home medical equipment services to determine whether they meet the Medicare Conditions of Participation and CMS Quality Standards.
