The re-survey process for Medicare and MedicaidAug 9, 2018
We are pleased to report that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) survey has concluded, and Brookwood Baptist Medical Center’s action plan has been accepted. We will continue to fully participate in the Medicare and Medicaid programs without interruption. There is more work ahead, and we will be resurveyed in the future, but we are no longer in immediate jeopardy status.
I am proud that our team was able to successfully make the organizational and procedural changes required. Going forward, we will continue to work with our governing agencies, including CMS and the Alabama Department of Public Health, to demonstrate our unwavering commitment to patient safety and implementation of our corrective actions.
If you are a participant in either the Medicare or Medicaid programs, and you have questions regarding an upcoming appointment or procedure scheduled at Brookwood Baptist Medical Center, please call our patient access department at 205-877-5449.
Brookwood Baptist Medical Center takes patient safety very seriously and remains fully committed to providing the quality of care our community expects.
