The Joint Commission has accredited hospitals for more than 50 years.
In 2001, The Joint Commission introduced a new program to accredit critical access hospitals.
CAHs are hospitals identified by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services as having met, or eligible to meet, the conditions for becoming a Critical Access Hospital.
For more information see Facts about Critical Access Hospital Accreditation.
