Hudson Hospital & Clinics has 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 hospitals. The accreditation award recognizes Hudson Hospital & Clinics dedication to continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s state-of-the-art standards.
Hudson Hospital & Clinics underwent a rigorous unannounced two-day on-site survey this summer. A team of Joint Commission expert surveyors evaluated Hudson Hospital & Clinics for compliance with standards of care specific to the needs of patients, including infection prevention and control, leadership and medication management. Hudson’s Environment of Care (EOC) program was found to be exceptional as surveyors recommended an element of the program for review by Joint Commission as a model for Best Practices.
“In achieving Joint Commission accreditation, Hudson Hospital & Clinics has demonstrated its commitment to the highest level of care for its patients,” said Mark Pelletier, executive director, Hospital Programs, Accreditation and Certification Services, The Joint Commission. “Accreditation is a voluntary process and I commend Hudson Hospital & Clinics for successfully undertaking this challenge to elevate its standard of care and instill confidence in the community it serves.”
“The Joint Commission accreditation is a result of our continual quality efforts on behalf of staff, medical staff and our care partners who strive to practice quality and safety standards and dedication to patient care,” said President & CEO, Hudson Hospital & Clinics Marian Furlong. “It’s also a reflection of how we are achieving the Triple Aim for our patients - to improve the health of our patients, provide an exceptional patient experience, while controlling health care costs.”
The Joint Commission evaluates and accredits more than 18,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission is the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.
