About the DNV-GL
Hudson Regional Hospital is accredited by the international standard DNV-GL, the first and only accreditation program to integrate National Integrated Accreditation for Healthcare Organizations (NIAHO®), the CMS Conditions of Participation with the ISO 9001 Quality Management Program (QMS). Their collaborative survey teams visit our hospital annually and they encourage hospitals to focus on quality management and communications within the hospital.
DNV-GL assures a clear framework for the improvement of patient safety and quality of care, focusing on pro-active risk management especially in medications, physical environment, and higher risk services such as anesthesia, obstetrics and ER.

About the Out-of-network Consumer Protection, Transparency, Cost Containment and Accountability Act (OON)
Hudson Regional Hospital is dedicated to providing consumers with as much information as possible regarding potential healthcare costs. Accordingly, we have listed information on the insurers and products the hospital participates in as well as any exceptions.
This list may not be comprehensive. For example, specialty insurers such as workers’ compensation and personal injury protection (”PIP”) are not included because there are a number of differenet types of insurance products and we may not participate in all of them. If you do not see your plan listed on our website, we strongly recommend that you contact us or your health insurance plan to confirm whether your plan is in-network or out-of-network.
