What is Joint Commission Accreditation?
The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) is an independent non-profit that certifies and accredits healthcare offices and programs in the United States. Their mission is to continuously improve healthcare for the public by evaluating healthcare organizations and inspiring them to excel in providing safe and effective care.
The Joint Commission Accreditation is nationally recognized as a symbol of quality, which demonstrates a healthcare program’s commitment to meeting performance standards. The Joint Commission standards are developed with input from scientific research, medical professionals, providers, government agencies, and consumers.
Why is Joint Commission Accreditation important to us?
Receiving this accreditation demonstrates our commitment to meeting performance standards, as well as our compliance to state regulatory and licensure requirements. Our Joint Commission Accreditation shows that we take pride in not only providing great care, but enhancing the safety and quality of our care, treatment, and services. This means that we are constantly improving, while using industry standards as guidelines.
We care about our clients’ recovery at Serenity Springs. We want every client to have a safe, quality experience that lasts long after they leave. This is why we employ a team of clinical experts as well as a staff of treatment professionals who have recovered themselves.
