Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP)

About[]

Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP) is authorized by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to survey all hospitals for compliance with the Medicare Conditions of Participation and Coverage.

Originally created in 1945 to conduct an objective review of services provided by osteopathic hospitals, HFAP has maintained its deeming authority continuously since the inception of CMS in 1965 and meets or exceeds the standards required by CMS/Medicare to provide accreditation to all hospitals, ambulatory care/surgical facilities, mental health facilities, physical rehabilitation facilities, clinical laboratories and critical access hospitals. HFAP also provides certification reviews for Primary Stroke Centers.

HFAP's surveying process and standards benefit from oversight by a wide range of medical professionals, including both allopathic and osteopathic disciplines.
