Jordan Valley Awards & Accreditations
Jordan Valley Medical Center is continually prepared for surveys in order to ensure compliance with the highest levels of quality care and patient safety standards as set by Det Norske Veritas (DNV), CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services), the Utah Department of Health and Human Services and many other regulatory, licensing and accrediting agencies.
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) purpose is to ensure effective, up-to-date health care coverage and to promote quality care for its beneficiaries. CMS’s hospital survey process is part of the hospital provider’s agreement for Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement.
CMS develops Conditions of Participation (CoPs) and Conditions for Coverage (CfCs) which health care organizations must meet in order to begin and continue participating in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. These minimum health and safety standards are the foundation for improving quality and protecting the health and safety of beneficiaries.
Det Norske Veritas (DNV)
DNV Healthcare offers hospital accreditation approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Annual deemed status surveys are an essential component of hospital accreditation through DNV. Jordan Valley Medical Center has been accredited by DNV since July 2009.
DNV (Det Norske Veritas) was established in 1864 and is an independent foundation with a purpose to safeguard life, property and the environment. Increasing patient safety and reducing errors in healthcare is an important part of that purpose. DNV employs a highly collaborative survey process that encourages innovation and does not force hospitals to accept a generic template for patient safety goals. DNV utilizes the NIAHO standards, which is designed from the ground up to drive quality transformation into the core processes of running a hospital. NIAHO helps healthcare organizations meet their national accreditation obligations and achieve ISO 9001 compliance in the same seamless program. DNV surveys are conducted annually.
Utah Department of Health and Human Services
The Utah Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) promotes the health and well-being of Utahns through the delivery or facilitation of essential services to ensure families are strengthened, public health is protected, and individuals achieve their highest level of self-sufficiency.
College of American Pathologists (CAP)
The College of American Pathologists, the leading organization of board-certified pathologists, serves patients, pathologists, and the public by fostering and advocating excellence in the practice of pathology and laboratory medicine. Jordan Valley Medical Center’s main Laboratory and Arterial Blood Gas (ABG) Laboratory are accredited by CAP.
American Diabetes Association Education Recognition Program

HYPERBARIC AND WOUND CENTER
The Hyperbaric and Wound Center at Jordan Valley Medical Center is accredited by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) “with DISTINCTION.” The coveted “with distinction” status is only given to the top 4% of hyperbaric centers in the U.S. who meet the highest standards of patient care, quality, and safety dictated by the UHMS. Out of over 1,375 hyperbaric centers in the country, only 210 meet stringent UHMS accreditation requirements, and only 50 of those are “accredited with distinction.” The UHMS determines the standard of care by Medicare and other intermediaries, the qualifications for board certification by the American Board of Medical Specialties, advances in research, and the gold standard in quality and safety for hyperbaric centers worldwide.
