On Approved List
The Haywood County hospital
has again been included on the list
of approved hospitals in the United
States and Canada in an official
announcement by Dr. Irvin Abell,
of Louisville, chairman of the
board of regents of the American
College of Surgeons. The list was
compiled from the results of the
28th annual hospital standardiza
tion made in survey in 1945.
The survey showed that 3.181
hospitals or 80.8 per cent of those
inspected met the minimum stand
ards for approval. This compares
with a total of 3,152 approved
hospitals following the 1944 survey.
The approved hospitals in the
United States, Canada and a few
other countries are listed in the
annual approved number of the
Bulletin of the college just issued.
On the list are hospitals of 25
beds and over which have complied
satisfactorily with the require
ments that assure the best of care
of the sick and injured.
The American College of Sur
geons, representing some 14,000
leading surgeons in this country
and Canada and other areas, car
ries on extensive work each year
in improving hospital service.
Dr. Malcolm T. MacEachern, as
sociate director of the college and
in charge of its hospital activities,
declares that the indispensability
of good hospital care was forcibly
impressed upon both civilians and
military personnel in their war
time experiences, which demon
strated the contribution that scien
tific medicine as practiced in hos
pitals, Is making to health conser
