About DNV Accreditation
DNV Healthcare, Inc.
Crotched Mountain Specialty Hospital is accredited by DNV Healthcare, Inc., a private organization authorized by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services to certify that participating hospitals meet the CMS Conditions of Participation. DNV Healthcare integrates ISO 9001 quality compliance systems in its survey. All participating hospitals are required to achieve ISO 9001 level compliance within three years of initial accreditation. The DNV program is not only a new option for accreditation; it is an entirely new approach to accreditation. DNV focuses not simply on auditing the hospital’s business processes but on finding better ways to do things in every department.
