At Florida Hospital we care deeply about the wellbeing of our patients and their families. As such, we believe it is important to provide our patients with necessary resources to make informed decisions about their care based on the very latest information available.
Below are resources that will be useful in helping you choose health care services and providers that are right for you and your family.
The Joint Commission
The Joint Commission is an independent organization that provides accreditation and certification to healthcare organizations through regular (approximately every 3 years) onsite validations. This accreditation signifies our hospital’s commitment to meeting quality, safety, organizational and leadership standards.
Det Norske Veritas Accreditation (DNV)
DNV Accreditation requires an annual survey and the organization’s continual compliance with the Det Norske Veritas Accreditation process. Focusing on aspects of quality, innovation and continual improvement, DNV accredits health care providers across the US, including multi-hospital systems, community hospitals, teaching institutions and regional medical centers.
Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA)
The AHCA serves as the chief health policy and planning entity in Florida. The agency is responsible for administering Medicaid, licensing and regulating health facilities and providing information to residents about the quality of health care they receive in the state. The website contains performance and outcome data for health care facilities in Florida as well as information on selected medical conditions and procedures. Learn more at www.floridahealthfinder.gov.
Hospital Compare was jointly created by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Department of Health and Human Services, and other members of the Hospital Quality Alliance. This resource displays rates for Process of Care measures that show whether or not hospitals provide some of the care that is recommended for treatment of heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, asthma (children only) and surgical procedures.
