In its continual pursuit to reach its goal of providing exceptional care to its patients in a safe environment, Fairway Medical Surgical Hospital has been accredited by DNV Healthcare, Inc. DNV's NIAHOSM service is the first new federally-approved accreditation program in more than 30 years. This accreditation is important because it confirms that Fairway is meeting or exceeding Medicare and Medicaid's standards to be a provider of healthcare services. Compliance is reached through adherence to the National Integrated Accreditation for Healthcare Organizations (NIAHO) standards and the ISO 9001 Quality Management System standards.

ISO 9001 is recognized by corporations and businesses around the world as the benchmark for continual quality improvement. Innovative hospitals have begun to embrace ISO to identify and focus on the most successful approaches to patient care, billing, purchasing and other critical aspects of running a hospital. Fairway's commitment to quality is exemplified by its compliance to ISO (International Organization for Standardization) standards which are the foundation of Fairway's Quality Management System. Compliance to these standards guarantees Fairway Medical Surgical Hospital is taking all necessary steps to provide safe and effective healthcare to patients. It also allows Fairway Medical to receive reimbursement for its patients covered by Medicare and Medicaid.

The DNV NIAHO/ISO program is new approach to accreditation. It focuses not simply on auditing the hospital's business processes but on finding better ways for the facility to function. Fairway Medical was the first hospital in Louisiana to achieve accreditation with DNV Healthcare, Inc.

Accreditation surveys are the vehicle, self-sustaining improvement and continual quality is the result.
