COOKEVILLE – The Cookeville Regional Medical Center (CRMC) board of trustees has recently been awarded 3-star board certification by the Tennessee Hospital Association’s (THA) Trustee Council. The 3-star certification is the highest certification that may be received and is only held by eight Tennessee hospitals. The CRMC board has maintained certification since 2011.
The Board Certification Program provides educational guidance to ensure excellence, innovation and accountability in healthcare governance. It allows board members to stay informed on important healthcare topics, such as health reform, finance, quality, compliance and cultural competency, while identifying appropriate best practices for hospitals in these areas.
THA, founded in 1938, serves as an advocate for hospitals, health systems, home health agencies and other healthcare organizations and the patients they serve.
