The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval
Our facilities have met rigorous performance standards in delivering quality, safe care.
Horizon Health and Wellness is proud to have earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.
What is The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval?
Our facility voluntarily underwent a thorough evaluation by The Joint Commission. The goal of the evaluation is to see if our facilities meet The Joint Commission’s rigorous performance standards in delivering quality, safe care to the patients we serve. The Joint Commission is an independent, not-for-profit organization that is the nation’s predominant standard-setting and accrediting body in healthcare.
What Does Being Accredited by The Joint Commission Mean to You?
Accreditation means that the Horizon staff has made an extra effort to review and improve the key areas that can affect the quality and safety of your care. Specially trained health care professionals from The Joint Commission – who are experts in their fields – visited our facilities to conduct a review that monitors how well our staff:
- Provides a safe environment for your care.
- Educates you about the risks and options for your diagnosis and treatment.
- Protects your rights as a patient, including your privacy rights.
- Evaluates your condition before, during and after diagnosis and treatment.
- Protects you against infection.
- Plans for emergency situations.
The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval confirms our commitment to your safety and care.
