Credentials and Accreditation

South Pacific Private is a registered Acute Care Psychiatric Hospital, fully licensed by the NSW Department of Health and is accredited by the Australian Council on Health Care Standards (ACHS).

We have several robust measures in place, including participation in the nation-wide Health of the Nation Outcome Scale. (HoNOS). Results indicate that our outcomes are comparable to other hospitals in terms of symptomatic improvement but superior in terms of psycho-social and long-term recovery. The hospital has also maintained accreditation with the Australian Council of Healthcare Standards since 1994 and

 actively maintains a comprehensive Quality Improvement Plan promoting effective governance and continuous improvement practices. 

Accreditation is used by health care organisations to continuously improve the quality of care they deliver to the community. South Pacific Private must demonstrate every three years how they have improved their 

services. The hospital has maintained accreditation with the Australian Council of Healthcare Standards (and now the NSQHS Standards) since 1994 and actively maintains a comprehensive Quality Improvement Plan promoting effective governance and continuous improvement practices.

Staff at South Pacific Private enthusiastically embrace the accreditation process. In 2016 the hospital achieved accreditation with no recommendations for improvement.  In addition to achieving full accreditation, South Pacific Private was also awarded merits in Standards 1,2,4,5 & 6. Accreditation demonstrates to our clients our commitment to continuing quality improvement and delivering high-quality care.
