Bozeman Health expands their hospital accreditation and certification relationship with DNV.
The Spine + Joint Institute at Bozeman Health has become the first facility in Montana to earn the prestigious Orthopaedic Center of Excellence Designation from DNV. This distinction validates Bozeman Health’s dedication to patient safety and their quality of orthopaedic care.
“Achieving this designation establishes Bozeman Health as Montana’s leader in orthopaedic services,” says Kelly Proctor, President of DNV Healthcare USA Inc. “Patients can choose this facility with confidence, knowing its quality and patient safety are at the highest level.”
To earn designation as an Orthopaedic Center of Excellence, a hospital must obtain certification with DNV in at least three (3) of their orthopaedic service line programs. Bozeman Health has achieved certification of their Hip and Knee Replacement, Spine Surgery, and Shoulder Surgery Programs. The requirements for these certifications are based on industry standards and best practices. The certification process includes a rigorous onsite survey by DNV.
Bozeman Health has enjoyed a successful relationship with DNV. John Hill, President and CEO of Bozeman Health states, “DNV’s accreditation model goes further than other programs – shifting focus from gaining accreditation to a goal of constantly improving quality. Hill says, “Since becoming the first health system in Montana to seek and achieve hospital accreditation through DNV in 2016, Bozeman Health has continued on this system-wide journey towards cultural transformation that persistently reinforces high-quality performance and continual improvement in a patient-centric care model.”
David Tellez, Regional Lead, DNV Supply Chain and Product Assurance, states, “DNV takes pride in knowing we’re making hospitals safer and improving outcomes for patients through programs like this, as well as our new Glycemic Management Program Certification.”
DNV presented Bozeman Health and the Spine + Joint Institute team with a Certificate of Designation on Thursday, June 16, 2022, celebrating their hard work in seeking to improve spine and joint outcomes for their patients and their community.
