When trust matters

We understand your goal is to consistently deliver the best possible patient treatment and care. 

Reaching that goal is made easier when you choose an accrediting organization that collaborates with you to understand what works for your team, and how to optimize those successes. At DNV, we provide accreditation services that focus on the individuality of your organization and what is proven to work for you.   

The DNV survey approach is collaborative, adaptable, and focuses on helping your organization improving continually, year over year. The result is consistently improved health outcomes for patients and peace of mind for families. 

Collaborative DNV surveys benefit your patients, your staff, and your community.

Our experts have worked in hospitals and have seen the survey process from your perspective. Their experiences have shaped our beliefs regarding hospital accreditation and certification:

  • Quality of patient care is always the priority
  • Every hospital is unique, and how they meet standards and requirements should be unique as well
  • An effective survey process is collaborative, educational, and transparent
  • Quality matters every single day
  • Nonconformities are an opportunity to improve, rather than a penalty
  • Collaboration builds trust
