That is the return on investment for nursing care centers accredited by The Joint Commission. It doesn't just pay for itself. It pays for over four of itself.

We call that a business case for quality.


When you choose The Joint Commission as your accreditor, not only are you choosing to meet the highest standards in the industry to validate and improve your quality of care, but you’re also choosing a return on investment in ways that may surprise you.

A recent study of Joint Commission-accredited nursing care centers confirms our accreditation delivers an average lifetime ROI of 413%. That means for every dollar invested in accreditation, organizations saw that dollar returned plus $4.13 more.

From elements foundational to quality care like improved staff competency and retention, to increased revenue and reimbursement, Joint Commission accreditation has far-reaching impacts that can help you to meet your goals.
