St. Mary's Hospital Re-Accredited by the Joint Commission of Quality of Care.Aug 13, 2015
The Joint Commission (TJC) is the country’s oldest and largest accreditor of healthcare organizations, established in 1951. Carondelet St. Mary’s Hospital has been Joint Commission-certified since 1963.
This is no easy feat, as accreditation requires regular, unannounced, on-site surveys to ensure the entire facility complies with best practices and operates at the highest level. By meeting rigorous performance standards set by TJC, St. Mary’s shows that it can deliver the right treatment in the right way at the right time – a cornerstone of healthcare excellence.
"Accreditation with The Joint Commission is the industry standard for best practices. Recognition by this prestigious organization assures the public of our commitment to the highest quality standards,” says President and CEO of Carondelet St. Mary’s Hospital, Amy Beiter, MD. “Our patients and their families know they are being cared for by an accredited healthcare facility dedicated to providing the safest and most effective care.”
