ACCREDITATION

Accredited by:
New York State Department of Health
The Joint Commission

Joint Commission:
Elizabethtown Community Hospital chooses to be reviewed by the Joint Commission because it demands quality health care and so do we.

The Joint Commission sets high standards of care and evaluates healthcare organizations against those standards. The Joint Commission, together with its parent organizations - the American Medical Association, the American College of Surgeons, the American College of Physicians and the American Dental Association - leads our nation's efforts to improve the quality of healthcare provided to all of us.

See the results of the most recent Joint Commission Survey (Feb. 2011) at healthcarequalitydata.org.

Affiliation:
In 1992, Elizabethtown Community Hospital entered into an affiliation with Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital Medical Center in Plattsburgh, NY. to foster greater collaboration in the design, delivery and measurement of clinical care. The affiliation promotes efforts that may lead to the development of an integrated care delivery network capable of serving residents of Northern New York and beyond. Both ECH and CVPH are overseen by Community Providers, Inc., a parent holding company.


 


 

CRITICAL ACCESS HOSPITAL

ECH is designated as a critical access hospital (CAH) by the federal government. This designation is given to small hospitals located over 35 miles from another hospital. The CAH must have agreements in place with other hospitals that are willing to accept patients requiring additional and immediate care. Those hospitals must trust the abilities and capabilities of the CAH, to effectively manage initial patient care. There are 1,324 CAHs across the United States and 13 of those are in New York state.

There are only five joint Commission-accredited critical access hospitals in New York. Elizabethtown Community Hospital is the only one north of Albany and east of Lake Ontario.
