What Is Certification?

shareslide1

Certification is earned by programs or services that may be based within or associated with a health care organization. For example, a Joint Commission accredited medical center can have Joint Commission certified programs or services within neurological or orthopedics. These programs could be within the medical center or in the community.

What's the Word on Certification?

Joint Commission certification is a hallmark of excellence. We found that preparing for certification unified our entire staff. They rallied as a team to work toward the goal of meeting the certification requirements. Our hospital wanted to be a center of excellence and certification helped us achieve this goal.
