DC DOH Issues Restricted License to Greater Southeast Community Hospital

(Washington, DC) - Mr. James A. Buford, Director, Department of Health (DOH), announced that Greater Southeast Community Hospital has been issued a restricted license, effective November 3, 2003. This license will allow the hospital to continue to operate, and will restrict its inpatient capacity to 150.

On August 12, 2003, Greater Southeast Community Hospital entered into a Consent Agreement with the Department of Health (DOH). Under the agreement, the hospital was required to correct deficiencies within 60 days in order to retain its license. The hospital was directed to improve its performance in the following areas: Emergency Department; Fire and Life Safety; Staffing; Medical Executive Committee; and Quality Assurance. The 60-day period ended on October 12th, after which the DOH Health Regulation Administration submitted a final report and licensure recommendation to the Director. The director pledged to make a final determination on or about November 1, 2003.

“I am pleased to announce that Greater Southeast Community Hospital has met the conditions of the Consent Agreement,” said Mr. Buford. “We will continue to monitor the hospital to assure quality health care for all residents.”

Pursuant to District law and regulation, the hospital may request that the restriction be lifted or adjusted in order to increase its inpatient capacity. In conjunction with such a request, the hospital will be required to submit evidence of ongoing compliance with the applicable laws and regulations.
