OAK HILL - The Plateau Medical Center in Oak Hill is honored by the leading health care accreditor over the weekend.
They were recognized for exemplary performance in using evidence-based clinic processes that are shown improved care for certain conditions. The medical center is honored by the Joint Commission which is the leading accreditor of U.S. Health Care organizations. Administrators say the credit goes to medical staff employees and volunteers.
"It's a big achievement for the hospital, for the staff just because we've worked so hard everyday and it's hard to get recognized for these because there is a lot of competition across hospitals nationwide," said Chad Hatfield, CEO of Plateau Medical Center.
He says there is always room to grow and they will continue tio keep striving for excellence.
