Phoenician Hospice is CHAP Accredited

What does it mean to be CHAP Accredited?

Standards of Excellence is designed to give supportive care to patients in the final stages of incurable disease with a focus on comfort and quality of life. The Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP) is an independent non-profiting accrediting body that certifies an organization that has met the highest standards of excellence with CHAP accredited status. CHAP’s broadly structured nationally recognized Standards of Excellence provide insight into best practices for quality and performance. This rigorous evaluation process by CHAP focuses on the structure and function, long term viability, and quality to services. Here at Phoenician Hospice, we are proud to be part of the few hospices in the state of Arizona that have achieved CHAP accreditation and have been Deemed Status to meet the Medicare conditions of participation. Phoenician Hospice is certified as a Medicare provider and is currently serving Greater Phoenix, including Scottsdale, Chandler, Mesa, and the surrounding area.
