Accreditations

    • The Joint Commission

      SSH-Durham is fully accredited by the Joint Commission, the preeminent accreditation agency in the healthcare industry. Joint Commission standards help ensure that patient care is provided in a safe manner and in a secure environment. The Joint Commission develops these standards in consultation with health care experts, providers and researchers, as well as measurement experts, purchasers and consumers. Our hospital's most recent survey was in March 2013, with outstanding results.

    • Medicare Certified

      We are fully certified as meeting all federal regulations and conditions of participation as required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Department of Health and Human Services.

    • North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Health Service Regulation

      We are also fully licensed and certified by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Health Service Regulation (www.ncdhhs.gov). State licensure verifies compliance with state and federal health and safety standards in supervised health care facilities as mandated by law. Regular on-site surveys assure health, safety, sanitation, fire and quality of care requirements and identify deficiencies which may affect state licensure or eligibility for federal reimbursements under the Medicare program.
