Joint Commission

Joint Commission accreditation can be earned by many types of health care organizations, including hospitals, doctor’s offices, nursing homes, office-based surgery centers, behavioral health treatment facilities, and providers of home care services.

 

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.
