CHANS Home Health & Hospice Again Accredited by The Joint Commission

CHANS Home Health & Hospice has received re-accreditation by The Joint Commission. CHANS first received The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval in 2011 and is the only Brunswick-based home care agency to do so.

CHANS Home Health & Hospice underwent a rigorous, unannounced review in October 2019. During the visit, a team of reviewers from The Joint Commission evaluated CHANS on its compliance with home health standards including emergency management, infection prevention and control, patient-centered care planning, and leadership.

The Joint Commission’s standards were developed through consultation with healthcare experts and providers, as well as patients and measurement experts. The standards are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus and help healthcare organizations measure, assess, and improve performance.

"Receiving this accreditation from The Joint Commission once again highlights our dedication to providing consistent, excellent care that meets the highest medical standards," said Randee Reynolds, Vice President of Community Health for Mid Coast–Parkview Health. "We are grateful to be re-accredited, and we remain committed to caring for the health of our community, including those who require care at home."

CHANS Home Health & Hospice is a trusted, local, non-for-profit home health provider that has offered skilled nursing, rehabilitation, hospice care, and private duty services in the Midcoast community for more than 70 years. Learn more at
