The data behind third party recognition offers our team in-depth information, which we can use to strengthen our programs, services and internal operations.
Recognition by third party organizations is an important factor in our efforts to measure ourselves against national benchmarks. They show us that we are on the right track as we compare ourselves to best practices and the best health systems across the nation.

Cleverley + Associates Community Value Index (2009 - 2012)
The Community Value Index (CVI) was created to provide an assessment of a hospital's performance in four areas: financial strength and reinvestment, cost of care, pricing, and quality of care. The CVI suggests that hospitals that have low costs, low charges, use financial resources efficiently for reinvestment back into the provision of healthcare, and provide a high quality of patient care are operating with a high degree of community value.
Joint Commission Accreditation (2012)
Joint Commission accreditation is a voluntary process consisting of rigorous, unannounced site surveys by a team of physicians, nurses and other health executives. Commission accredited or certified organizations have demonstrated that they meet the highest standards in their field.
