ProCare, Pekin Hospital’s affiliated durable home medical equipment company, has achieved the Award of Accreditation from the Healthcare Quality Association on Accreditation, based in Waterloo, Iowa. This award is achieved only when home medical equipment companies demonstrate a high level of quality practices in their business operations and patient care techniques. ProCare earned the three-year accreditation after completing a comprehensive application that focuses on patient care, financial stability, and a commitment to quality operational practices and procedures. Accreditation by the Healthcare Quality Association on Accreditation assures Medicare and other payers that the highest levels of quality are practiced within all areas of the company.
“We sought accreditation by the Healthcare Quality Association on Accreditation to demonstrate that our company is committed to providing excellent patient care and safety in a financially solvent environment,” says Scott Haynes, Director of ProCare. “This award also reinforces that our commitment to quality is ongoing. We are very proud to have zero deficiencies in our survey, and we look forward to continuing to provide great service and quality equipment to the people in the communities that we serve.”
