Jones County Hospital is now ISO certified

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - South Central Regional Medical Center recently received notification Monday they are the first DNV/ISO certified hospital in Mississippi.

For the last three years, SCRMC has been working to meet several sets of standards, to ensure the hospitals policy and procedures are consistent with providing maximum healthcare. For quite some time the hospital has been visited by a team of healthcare surveyors, who evaluate each departments compliance.

President and CEO of SCRMC Doug Higginbotham said, "This is a great achievement! It took a collective effort of everybody at this organization. I think it shows the cohesiveness, and our dedication to the care of our patients. We want our patients to have a good experience when they come to our facility and I think this is a rallying point for all of them."

This federally approved accreditation replaces the hospitals joint commission accreditation.
