Casino Hospital shows it cares

Casino Hospitals Auxiliary president Edna Fuller and executive officer Peter Jeffree with the accreditation certificate from the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards. NCAHS chief executive Chris Crawford, director of nursing Kaylene Guthrie and hospital staff shared the good news.

Last week Casino Hospital and Community Health received full accreditation from the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (ACHS) a reward for the high level of patient care it provides.

This latest accreditation sends a message to the community that the management and staff of Casino Hospital and Community Health are committed to excellence in health care and have a strong and continuing focus on safety, quality and performance, said the North Coast Area Health Services chief executive, Chris Crawford.

Mr Crawford said the public had every right to expect a high standard of health care and the Casino community should be pleased that the hospital and Community Health meet this expectation. The accreditation was only awarded after a rigorous evaluation process.

The Casino Hospital and Community Health are playing a central role in helping to care for the local community and all staff can feel proud in the teams achievements, Mr Crawford said.

The ACHS awarded Casino Hospital a four-year seal of approval.
