Methodist Dallas Receives CMS and Joint Commission Certification Notification
Today Methodist Dallas Medical Center received electronic notification from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) with the findings of the Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) survey which concluded November 8 at Methodist Dallas. The letter confirms that as a result of the hospital’s comprehensive action plan and the survey, CMS has found Methodist Dallas Medical Center to be in full compliance with all Medicare conditions of participation and will continue to be deemed to meet applicable Medicare requirements.
The hospital also received notification this week from its accrediting organization, The Joint Commission. The letter confirms that based upon an unannounced full survey conducted September 6 – 9, The Joint Commission has granted Methodist Dallas full accreditation for continued Medicare certification until its next regularly scheduled survey in December 2014.
“Surveyors from both TDSHS and Joint Commission were complimentary of our employees and medical staff, and our response to and preparation for the surveys,” said Laura Irvine, president of Methodist Dallas Medical Center. “I am proud that as evidenced by these surveys and other publicly-available local, regional, and national quality measurements, Methodist Dallas Medical Center has demonstrated our commitment to providing compassionate, quality care for the patients we serve.”
