GREENSBURG, IN — Decatur County Memorial Hospital (DCMH) announces it
has achieved accreditation through Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) for the services of in-lab
and home sleep study programs.
Accreditation is a process through which healthcare organizations demonstrate compliance with national
standards. Accreditation by ACHC reflects an organization’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards
that facilitate a higher level of performance and patient care.
ACHC is a nonprofit organization that has stood as a symbol of quality and excellence since 1986. ACHC is
ISO 9001:2015 certified and has CMS deeming authority for Home Health, Hospice and DMEPOS.
According to Tyler Schmid, DCMH Respiratory Care Manager, “Sleep accreditation is a voluntary process, but
by choosing to continue our accreditation through ACHC, DCMH demonstrates to patients and referring
physicians that we are committed to providing the highest quality patient care.”
“Receiving this accreditation validates we are, indeed, a leader among hospitals nationwide,” says Chief
Nursing Officer Cathy Wichman.
