Hear from Our Customers

If you think Joint Commission accreditation is expensive, try not being accredited. Quality saves money. If we can prevent a fall or a hospital-associated infection, that benefits our bottom line.

Bottom line, Joint Commission accreditation helps us attract customers who might not look at us otherwise. The Gold Seal gives us instant credibility. We have facilities in different parts of the country, so when families choose a location they know that each facility provides the same high quality care no matter where it is located.
