Accreditation Connection, October 21, 2011

The Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP) announced it has named a new director of accreditation services, Beverly Robbins, most recently acting as Chicago Medical Center’s director of nursing ambulatory care. This is the second major appointment in less than a month for the Chicago-based accrediting body, which also named Joseph L. Cappiello as their new chief operating officer recently as well.

In addition to her experience with Chicago Medical Center, Robbins served as the field director for the ambulatory care program for The Joint Commission from 2002 to 2010.

"I’m thrilled to have someone of Ms. Robins’ caliber join our organization," Michael J. Zarski, CEO of HFAP, said in an official press release. "Healthcare delivery is evolving at breakneck speed, and so is the accreditation process. Bringing Beverly and Joe onboard, two seasoned accreditation experts, demonstrates HFAP’s commitment to staying at the front of that curve. Combining education with rigorous assessment, HFAP will continue to help hospitals meet swiftly evolving quality standards."
