STAFF at Bundaberg Hospital are expecting a glowing report card in coming weeks after completing vigorous assessment for accreditation by healthcare experts late last year.

The Australian Council on Health Standards did a thorough examination of Bundaberg Hospital, Bundaberg Mental Health Services and surrounding rural health facilities in November.

Bundaberg Hospital operational executive Luke Worth said the independent report card would show the community that the hospital's healthcare services were "well on their way to a healthier future".

"Most importantly, these independent assessors investigated frontline healthcare at Bundaberg Hospital, spending a great deal of time at the coalface with staff and patients examining the quality and safety of our healthcare," he said.

"It was a thorough and vigorous assessment with months of preparation, hundreds of pages of documented evidence and 11 surveyors on site for a week."

Bundaberg Hospital's director of medical services, Dr Michael Hills, said it was one of the first assessed for accreditation under new guidelines setting the national standard for safety and quality health service.

"We expect the full report in the coming weeks, but initial feedback from these 11 independent healthcare assessors has been extremely positive," he said.

"We expect that the full report will show to the community that they can be proud of and confident in their local hospital."
