Joint Commission International Accreditation

How Important Is Accreditation? And What Are Some Key Accreditations  to Look For?

Accreditation is another way to judge quality. Accreditation is a “seal of approval” given by a private, independent group. Health care organizations must meet international and national standards, including clinical measures, in order to be accredited. We try to belong and participate in as many such initiatives as possible…seeking accreditation wherever we can.

Joint Commission International Accreditation
