Nuclear Care Partners received accreditation from the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) making it the only provider in the United States exclusively serving former atomic workers to achieve such a high level of patient care.
"We are thrilled to be accredited!" said Patti Kendall, VP of clinical compliance at Nuclear Care Partners. "It is unusual for a healthcare organization to become accredited unless they're required to do so. We chose to become accredited because we wanted to demonstrate our commitment to providing the highest level of patient care available to former atomic workers."
Accreditation is a process of review that allows health care organizations to demonstrate their ability to meet regulatory requirements and standards established by a recognized accreditation organization. Accreditation reflects an organization's dedication and commitment to meeting standards that demonstrate a higher level of performance and patient care.
Since 1945, more than 600,000 men and women have served in more than 360 nuclear weapons facilities throughout the United States. Many of these workers paid a high price for their service -- developing debilitating, and sometimes fatal, illnesses due to radiation and toxic chemical exposure. Nuclear Care Partners offers these workers no-cost benefits guidance and in-home care.
