Nuclear Care Partners received accreditation from Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) making it the only provider in the United States exclusively serving former atomic workers to achieve such a high level of patient care.
“We are thrilled to be accredited!” said Patti Kendall, VP of Clinical Compliance at Nuclear Care Partners. “It is unusual for a healthcare organization to become accredited unless they’re required to do so. We chose to become accredited because we wanted to demonstrate our commitment to providing the highest level of patient care available to former atomic workers. We feel that this level of quality in care really sets us apart from other providers.”
Accreditation is a process of review that allows healthcare organizations to demonstrate their ability to meet regulatory requirements and standards established by a recognized accreditation organization. Accreditation reflects an organization’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that demonstrate a higher level of performance and patient care.
To become accredited an organization must undergo a rigorous process that consists of ACHC surveyors making on site surveys, conducting visits in patient homes to assess their care, interviewing staff members about their practices, and reviewing medical records, policies, and procedures.
“Providing the best in patient care is at the heart of what we do,” said Patti Kendall, VP of Clinical Compliance, at Nuclear Care Partners. “Former atomic workers sacrificed their health to deter, and if necessary, fight, a nuclear war. We believe they deserve the highest level of care in return for the service they provided, and sacrifices made to keep our country safe.”
Since 1945, more than 600,000 men and women have served in more than 360 nuclear weapons facilities throughout the United States. Collectively, they built more than 70,000 nuclear weapons for the country’s nuclear defense. Many of these workers paid a high price for their service - developing debilitating, and sometimes fatal, illnesses due to radiation and toxic chemical exposure. Nuclear Care Partners offers these workers no-cost benefits guidance and in-home care.
Nuclear Care Partners has experienced significant growth since their inception in 2011 in response to the needs of former atomic workers. From program advancement to geographical expansion, Nuclear Care Partners now serves hundreds of former atomic workers across the United States and continues to grow to meet the needs of the communities they serve.
