Anaheim (Calif.) General Hospital has achieved recertification by the CMS after losing its contract with the federal agency in July 2009, according to the hospital. The 126-bed hospital hired a new leadership team and worked with state and federal surveyors to make changes necessary to improve quality and safety at the facility, officials announced. This included purchasing new lab equipment and implementing clinical and patient-safety systems as well as new compliance and performance-improvement systems, according to a press release from the hospital.
