Jan. 22, 2009 -- Kansas City, Mo. Sizewise proudly announces its award of accreditation status by the Accreditation Commission for Health Care, Inc. (ACHC) for the services of Durable/Home Medical Equipment.
ACHC, a private, not-for-profit corporation which is certified to ISO 9001:2000 standards, was developed by home care and community-based providers to help companies improve business operations and quality of patient care. Referring to the value of accreditation, ACHC President Tom Cesar indicated, “The survey process leads an organization to examine its policies and practices continually to clarify its strengths and improve its weaknesses.
Accreditation is a voluntary activity where healthcare organizations submit to peer review of their internal policies, processes and patient care delivery against national standards. By attaining accreditation, Sizewise has demonstrated its commitment to maintain a higher level of competency and strive for excellence in its products, services and customer satisfaction.
Since 1996, Sizewise has been manufacturing and distributing hospital equipment and products. With over 60 nationwide service locations, Sizewise prides itself on superior service in combination with quality products for the long term care, homecare, and acute care settings.
