At Promise Hospital of Phoenix, we understand how important reliable information, especially on safety and quality of care, is to you and your family when making health care decisions. This is why we make it a priority to adhere to all State and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) accreditation policies and procedures.
Hospitals that achieve accreditation and licensure are required to submit to formalized, comprehensive evaluations by on-site surveyors who assess compliance with health, quality and safety standards and regulations. These surveys are conducted regularly and involve participation from the entire hospital organization.
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) Standards
Promise Hospital of Phoenix is recognized by CMS as meeting the Medicare standards. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) has developed Conditions of Participation (CoPs) that health care organizations must meet to participate in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. These standards are used to improve quality and protect the health and safety of beneficiaries. CMS also ensures that the standards of accrediting organizations recognized by CMS (through a process called “deeming”) meet or exceed Medicare standards. You may visit the CMS website to learn more about their standards and regulations.
