Welcome to the CIHQ Hospital Accreditation Program

For Hospitals Participating in Medicare

Hospitals that want to participate in the Medicare program must be in compliance with the Conditions of Participation (COP) by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
CMS accepts accreditation by CIHQ to deem acute care hospitals to be in compliance with the COP'.
As a deemed-status provider, CIHQ provides hospitals with the tools and support they need to successfully achieve accreditation. CIHQ's philosophy and approach to accreditation is to engage with hospitals in a collegial, respectful, and educational manner; while assuring services are provided at a reasonable cost.
Please take a moment to review our standards, survey procedures, and policies.
We would be happy to answer any questions you have.
"I am quite pleased with how CIHQ approached, handled and managed the entire accreditation process. Superb and professionally done! Gratefully from Saint Camillus Medical Center Physicians and Staff."
