The Joint Commission Accreditation

A notice to SEARHC customers

In late 2013, The Joint Commission surveyed all SEARHC facilities for accreditation.

SEARHC earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety in ambulatory care organizations. The accreditation award recognizes SEARHC’s dedication to continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s state-of-the-art standards.

Purpose of accreditation surveys

The Joint Commission conducts unannounced accreditation surveys.

The purpose of these surveys is to evaluate an organization's compliance with nationally established standards from the Joint Commission. The survey results are used to determine whether, and the conditions under which, an accreditation should be awarded the organization.

The Joint Commission's standards deal with organizational quality of care issues and the safety of the environment in which care is provided.
