Accreditation Publicity Kit


The information provided on this page is intended to help Joint Commission accredited organizations publicize their accreditation and commitment to quality.


What's the Word on Accreditation?

We view Joint Commission accreditation as the equivalent of the Good Housekeeping “Seal of Approval” for hospitals. The Joint Commission sets higher standards than the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Conditions of Participation. CMS provides a baseline, but Joint Commission accreditation goes far beyond the CoPs in addressing the delivery of safe, quality patient care.
