Accreditation and safety
HealthEast Hospitals and Surgery Centers are certified by The Joint Commission. The Joint Commission is an independent, not-for-profit organization that was established over 50 years ago. They are the world leader in evaluating the quality and safety of care delivered in more than 17,000 health care organizations across the country.
To maintain and earn accreditation, a facility undergoes an extensive on-site review by a select team of professionals from The Joint Commission at least once every three years. The purpose of the review is to evaluate the facility's performance in areas that affect patient care. Through an assessment of processes and personal visits with patients and staff, the facility is evaluated and scored.
