JCAHO accreditation confirmed


August 03, 2005

Ketchikan, Alaska - As a result of the on-site survey conducted in January by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Facilities (JCAHO) Ketchikan General Hospital has received written notice officially granting it as "accredited for all services" including Hospital, Home Health, and Long Term Care. The accreditation is in effect until the end of 2008.

The voluntary JCAHO accreditation process serves as a continuous standards compliance and operational improvement tool for KGH. The survey identified a few minor areas in which KGH must make follow-up adjustments by October.

The hospital's 2005 Quality Report is available to the public and can be accessed through the JCAHO website: Follow links titled "Quality Check".
