NRMC Earns Swing Bed Accreditation

NEVADA, MO December 28, 2022 – Nevada Regional Medical Center has been surveyed by
the Center for Improvement in Healthcare Quality (CIHQ) and has successfully met the
requirements to be accredited for a Hospital Swing Bed Program. In meeting the requirements,
NRMC demonstrated compliance with all CIHQ Standards and the Conditions of Participation
by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. This recognition reflects NRMC’s
continuous commitment to safety and quality patient care.
Nevada Regional Medical Center was subjected to a rigorous, unannounced assessment on
December 13, 2022. The CIHQ team toured the hospital, reviewed medical records, observed
care practices, and interviewed staff.
“CIHQ’s goal is to partner with hospitals to improve the care provided in our communities,”
states Richard Curtis, Chief Executive Officer of CIHQ. “CIHQ is proud to recognize Nevada
Regional Medical Center for achieving swing bed accreditation.”
Jason Anglin, NRMC’s CEO stated: “We are so excited to add this service to NRMC. This will
help us better serve our community as patients will no longer have to travel to other facilities for
skilled care. Our doctors, nurses and rehabilitation staff will help patients stay close to home and
move forward in their recovery process. To prepare for this survey, our leadership team prepared
policies and educated our clinical staff on how to care for and rehabilitate patients after their
acute care stay. We are so proud of this accomplishment.”
