Preparing for Accreditation is a multi-year process. We are very proud of this achievement and thank our staff for all of their hard work and dedication in preparing for this accreditation survey."
Chief Nursing Officer and VP of Patient Care Jayne Menard says this news should be assuring to patients.
"Achieving this level of accreditation assures our patients, families and caregivers that the care and services they receive at Woodstock Hospital, meet nationally recognized standards for best practices and patient safety."
Woodstock Hospital goes through this evaluation process every 4 years. Highlights from the report include the Hospitals response to COVID-19, the quality care and dedication from staff and physicians from the Hospital and the strategic 5 year plan.
