National Quality Re-Certification
The National Association of Occupational Health Professionals (NAOHP) has awarded Sanford Health Occupational Medicine a three-year quality re-certification in occupational health services, achieving an outstanding presentation of the processes and results reporting.
NAOHP Surveyor Ms. Donna Lee Gardner, a nurse and specialized occupational health consultant, who was instrumental in developing the national standards that are applied during the certification process, said she was, “Extremely impressed with Sanford Health OccMed’s Program. They have highly committed staff who work wonderfully as a team for patient and client company excellence.” Ms. Gardner further commented, “They did a superior job preparing for the evaluation, and provided exceptional, well-organized, and comprehensive documentation for compliance to the NAOHP Standards.”
Occupational health programs and clinics undergoing NAOHP Site Certification are evaluated in comparison to established national standards in six categories:
- Administration & Organization
- Infrastructure for Operations
- Staffing Processes
- Quality Assurance
- Product Line Development
- Sales and Marketing
The Site Certification Program was established in 2006, as part of ongoing efforts to recognize occupational health professionals for their contributions to the health and well- being of the nation’s workforce.
