Choose the Trusted Name in Critical Access Hospital Quality
The Joint Commission accredits more critical access hospitals than any other accrediting body. Find out why.
Instill Community Confidence
Achieving accreditation is a visible demonstration to patients and the community that your organization provides the highest quality services. By going through a third-party evaluation, your hospital is looking to provide the best care possible, so important since critical access hospitals are frequently a huge pillar in a community.
Recognitions for Quality and Reimbursement
As the role of valued-based contracting increases, states, insurers and payors trust in Joint Commission accreditation as a quality metric to allow payment approval, network participation and contract or licensure eligibility.
