Niagara Hospice recently received accreditation from the Accreditation Commission for Health Care, a not-for-profit which recognizes organizations that meet rigorous national quality and safety standards.

Niagara Hospice sought accreditation voluntarily by submitted to peer review of internal policies, processes and patient care delivery.

“Our organization voluntarily chose to undergo the accreditation process to demonstrate our commitment to providing the right care, in the right place, at the right time to all of our patients and their families,” Vice President of Hospice Services Kay Dekker said in a written statement. “Receiving Deemed Status from ACHC also lets other health care providers know that when they choose to partner with Niagara Hospice in providing care to their patients, that level of care will be exceptional.”
