Valley has earned this recognition each year since 2003, when the QRCR program was initiated by the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) to help consumers identify those facilities using qualified respiratory therapists to provide respiratory care. Hospitals earning the QRCR designation ensure patient safety by agreeing to adhere to a strict set of criteria governing their respiratory care services.
The AARC’s QRCR program grew out of growing concerns among healthcare leaders and the general public regarding the safety and quality of healthcare services provided to patients. Based on the QRCR requirements, The Valley Hospital provides a level of respiratory care consistent with national standards and guidelines and is committed to quality care.
