High quality care recognised at Kilmore District Health

The Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (ACHS), Australia’s leading healthcare accreditation agency, has recognised the high quality care given to patients of Kilmore District Health (KDH) by awarding its accreditation through the NSQHS Standards program.

The attainment carries over from KDH’s last assessment period in 2020, meaning accreditation has been retained once again.

Jennifer Gilham, Interim CEO of KDH said it is important to achieve accreditation as it confirms how a healthcare organisation provides safety and quality care to patients.

“ACHS accreditation sends a clear message to the community that Kilmore District Health, its management and staff, are committed to excellence in health care with a strong and continuous focus on safety and quality,” Ms Gilham said.

“I would like to commend all staff involved, as well as the consumers for their contribution, not only during the assessment and evaluation process, but also for their support and commitment to quality through continuing dialogue and improvement initiatives.

“By listening to the community’s requirements and expectations of KDH, we have identified and carried out valuable improvements.

“We are aware that both patients and consumers today demand high standards of health care and are pleased that we have been recognised for meeting this expectation.”

Accreditation is used by health care organisations to continuously improve the quality of care they deliver to the community. Organisations must demonstrate during either a three or four-year period how they have improved their services.
