As a DNV-accredited health care facility, USC Verdugo Hills Hospital places a high priority on patient safety and quality care. Finding safer and more efficient ways to provide health care to our community remains a top priority for our hospital staff and leadership. In an effort to provide our patients and their families with accurate information about our quality measures, we have listed the following links to independent reporting and rating agencies. These agencies feature publicly reported data, as required by the government and other regulatory bodies.

DNV Healthcare’s accreditation program is referred to as NIAHO (National Integrated Accreditation for Healthcare Organizations). It is the only Medicare accreditation process based on ISO 9001:2008 standards for quality management systems that is used to measure quality and accountability in highly reliable organizations in a variety of industries.

DNV accreditation is the first and only CMS-approved accreditation program that integrates ISO 9001:2008 healthcare quality standards with Medicare Conditions of Participation.
