The Astria medical network of hospitals and clinics has had its share of less than fantastic publicity lately with the announcement of a reorganizational bankruptcy but there's news that offers a positive distraction and affirmation for the quality of care at Astria.

According to Astria's news release the Home Health and Hospice completed a week-long CHAP Survey, with a perfect score, zero deficiencies. The Community Health Accreditation Program, Inc. (CHAP) is an independent, non-profit accrediting body, established in 1965, that publicly certifies that an organization has voluntarily met the highest standards of excellence for home and/or community-based health care.

Astria's message to the community all along has been that quality care isn't and won't be affected by the bankruptcy.

This survey audits and evaluates various components of the programs, including review of policies and procedures, auditing of Medical Records, and home patient evaluations conducted with Astria’s Clinical Staff.

Our surveyors stated, “Its apparent how much the employees care for the patients they serve."
