4/20/2012

Ennis, Texas – Ennis Regional Medical Center announces that Joint Commission, the accreditation body for all hospitals across the nation, has reaccredited the hospital after one of the most successful surveys in the hospital’s history.

“Joint Commission accreditation is the gold standard that every hospital wants to achieve,” said David Anderson, CEO of Ennis Regional Medical Center. “Not only did we achieve it, we surpassed what most other hospitals our size across the nation are able to achieve,” he added. Anderson explained how surveyors made positive comments throughout the accreditation process.

Joint Commission surveyors arrived on the ERMC campus Tuesday morning and ended their survey process Friday afternoon. In order to assess the level of quality of care, the surveyors followed individual inpatients and outpatients throughout their entire stays in the hospital. During these studies, surveyors interviewed staff, inspected records, and reviewed the competency of the medical staff, as well as the patient care staff. At the end of the final day, the surveyors met with ERMC’s executive team and delivered the good news. After that, Mr. Anderson called a debriefing session for all employees. When Anderson announced the great news, employees broke out with applause.

“We continue to work to fulfill our mission of making Ennis and Ellis County healthier. Not only should the employees, physicians, and community leaders be very happy with today’s outcome from our rigorous survey, but the citizens should understand the greatest benefit is to our community. ERMC is truly, authentically good and we need to continue to strive to be even better. I could not be more proud of this hospital and our staff, leaders, and physicians. This year’s performance is better than our last survey in 2009 and is the best score in any hospital I have had the pleasure of serving as a leader.” Anderson concluded.

Ennis Regional Medical Center is a sixty bed acute care facility located in Ennis, Texas that exists to serve the City of Ennis and Ellis County in the provision of general acute care services. Ennis Regional Medical Center’s vision is to be the best at delivering excellent quality care and exceptional service.
