Our proud history
IPR prides itself in continuously improving the quality of service. To show its commitment to quality, IPR applied for JCAHO Accreditation ( Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations). The JCAHO accreditation allows the company to operate at a standard which is nationally accepted and recognized by healthcare organizations. IPR is accredited with “Deemed Status ” designation, which means that the company is subjected to unannounced surveys by JCAHO representatives to check and verify compliance to JCAHO standards. In the last JCAHO survey, IPR’s overall score is 95% without any Type I Recommendation.
Our mission and vision
Internally, IPR periodically reviews the results of satisfaction surveys conducted to determine the level of physician and patient confidence in the services we deliver. Our most recent Physician Survey showed that 92.6% were Very Satisfied, 7.4% were Satisfied and 0% were Dissatisfied. Our most recent Patient Satisfaction Survey indicated that 100% of the patients were Very Satisfied to Satisfied. These responses indicate the effectiveness of the programs and processes which we perform in delivering the best care to our patients.
Our leadership team
IPR is also committed to improve the personal and professional quality of life for its employees. The turnover of both clinical and administrative employees is below industry levels. About 95% of the office employees are still with the company since the management change in 1999. Several additional employees hired after 1999 are still employed with IPR.
IPR has put forth several employee benefit programs. IPR established an employee 401K matching plan in 2001. In the early part of 2002, IPR started a Medical/ Health Insurance benefit plan for its employees. Also for 2002, IPR has budgeted and allocated funds for continuing education and training for all its employees. Since then, IPR has been involved in several employee social activities and various community involvement activities with the participation of management and staff.
