At the height of COVID-19, with staff shortages and challenges never experienced before, both Sydney Adventist Hospital and San Day Surgery Hornsby have successfully met the requirements to be granted three years of accreditation under version 2 of the National Standards. 

CEO of Adventist HealthCare Limited (ACHL) Brett Goods said he is extremely proud of the outstanding accreditation results. Five surveyors spent four days at AHCL and acknowledged that the survey was conducted under very challenging circumstances—with more than 100 staff furloughed on any given day.

“We are also delighted that the surveyors noted that for an organisation of AHCL’s size and complexity, to gain accreditation in a single event without the need for high-priority follow-up of recommendations is not common across Australia,” said Mr Goods.

“The results are testament to the commitment that both leadership and staff have to patient care and to the excellent clinical and medical services that we offer.”
