Accreditations


Joint Commission Full Accreditation (2008)
An independent, nonprofit organization, The Joint Commission accredits and certifies more than 17,000 healthcare organizations and programs in the United States. Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards.

American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Certification (2009)
AACVPR sponsors a Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program Certification process, which is the only peer-reviewed accreditation process designed to provide standards and guidelines for cardiac and pulmonary rehab programs.  This program is designed to review individual facilities for adherence to standards and guidelines developed and published by the AACVPR and other professional societies.

American College of Surgeons, The Commission on Cancer Accreditation (2009)
The Commission on Cancer (CoC) Accreditation Program encourages hospitals, treatment centers and other facilities to improve their quality of patient care through various cancer-related programs. These programs focus on prevention, early diagnosis, pretreatment evaluation, staging, optimal treatment, rehabilitation, surveillance for recurrent disease, support services and end-of-life care.

American College of Radiology Accreditation for MRI (2007)
ACR accreditation signifies that the physicians supervising and interpreting medical imaging meet certain education and training standards. It also requires that the imaging equipment is surveyed regularly by qualified medical physicists to ensure proper functioning and ensures that the technologists administering the tests are appropriately certified.

Certified Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities (2007) 
This accreditation is for two programs: General Occupational Rehabilitation Program (GORP) and Comprehensive Occupational Rehabilitation Program (CORP). CARF-accredited service providers meet the highest national and international standards for quality. CARF accreditation demonstrates quality on a more personal level for patients injured at work and wanting to return to gainful employment.

American Association of Blood Banks Accreditation (Year)
AABB assesses the quality and safety of collecting, processing, testing, distributing and administering blood and blood products.

College of American Pathologist Accreditation (Year)
The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program is an internationally recognized program and the only one of its kind that utilizes teams of practicing laboratory professionals as inspectors. Designed to go well beyond regulatory compliance, the program helps laboratories achieve the highest standards of excellence to positively impact patient care.

Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (Year)
Congress passed the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) in 1988, establishing quality standards for all laboratory testing to ensure the accuracy, reliability and timeliness of patient test results regardless of where the test was performed.

American Diabetes Association Education Recognition Program (Year)
FMC’s Diabetes Self-Management Program (DSME) was re-certified as having an ADA Recognition status. The ADA ERP is one of three and the most experienced Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) deemed certifying bodies for Diabetes Self Management Training.
