DCH Facilities Management Team Receives Award

The Medxcel facilities management team at Daviess Community Hospital recently received the FMOS award which is given to organizations with a regulatory compliance rate of 95% or higher. DCH is one of only 65 (11 in Indiana with 3 of those in the Southern Region) organizations across the country to receive this award.

Medxcel assumed management of the hospital’s maintenance services in 2018. Since that time, many facility improvements have been made including emergency management & safety, grounds, environment of care and survey readiness. This is the 4th consecutive year that the DCH team has received this recognition.

Medxcel understands that providing a safe and compliant healthcare environment is their key role in supporting quality care of patients, staff and visitors. As a result, Medxcel had identified a methodical way of ensuring no risks are overlooked as it pertains to the Environment of Care (EOC).

“Our associates work continually to create and maintain excellence in the workplace,” says Joe Gardner, Medxcel Facilities Director. “The excellence everyone brings to work each day all comes together to create a lasting impact. Our job is to keep our hospitals operating efficiently, effectively and safely.”

FMOSTM, short for Facilities Management Operating Systems is a tool to help facilities measure, monitor and maintain regulatory compliance pertaining to the EOC. Nearly 75% of facilities management activities are subject to regulatory standards, which are designed to reduce risks to anyone who steps into a healthcare facility. With that in mind, FMOSTM organizes policies, procedures and documentation for quick access. In doing so, Medxcel’s Regulatory Compliance team facilitates the work of surveyors, giving facilities the best chance of passing the EOC portion of a regulatory survey.

For Medxcel associates, FMOSTM also means they can catch potential issues early, before they snowball into expensive, time-consuming problems.
