ACHC and HFAP Merger Expands Offerings for Providers


The historic merger of ACHC and HFAP is opening new possibilities for healthcare providers across the continuum of care. The merger unites two established stewards of quality care and patient safety and gives organizations an alternative, comprehensive source for accreditation needs in the marketplace.


As one company under the ACHC brand, we offer an extensive range of accreditation and certification options for hospitals, laboratories, and community-based providers, affording you a seamless, convenient way to achieve and maintain recognition. This also gives you greater value and convenience in meeting strategic business goals and broadening plans for the future.


HFAP is America’s original healthcare accreditation program. Since its founding in 1945, HFAP has driven advancements in patient safety and quality of care through a collaborative, informative, and peer-based approach to accreditation for hospitals, critical access hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, and clinical laboratories. HFAP also offers recognition for office-based surgery, stroke care, laser and lithotripsy services, joint replacement programs, and wound care.

The merger, the first between two accrediting organizations with CMS deeming authority, does not affect accreditation cycles, and Account Advisors and processes remain the same. ACHC customers can continue enjoying the highest level of personalized service and quality they have trusted for decades.


ACHC remains dedicated to helping you succeed. If you have any questions or want to learn more about expanded program choices, please call us at (855) 937-2242 or email
