Hospice earns national accreditation

Hospice of Marion County (HMC) has picked up its fourth accreditation, HMC announced.

The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for accreditation was earned by HMC after an extensive, week-long survey in November that evaluated HMC’s standards of care specific to the need of patients, leadership and medication management at various sites throughout the county. 

To be awarded the accreditation, facilities must demonstrate strict compliance with national standards for quality and safety. The award recognized HMC’s dedication to continuous compliance with standards set by The Joint Commission, which is the oldest and largest accrediting body in healthcare.

“Having received The Joint Commission’s accreditation validates the exceptional care we provide every patient and family,” said CEO Rick Bourne. “We are proud of our entire organization for their contributions in helping us maintain such high standards of excellence in serving our community.”

HMC’s first three accreditations came in 2011, 2014 and 2017. This is all the third time HMC achieved Deemed status, after achieving it in 2014, 2017 and 2020.
