Green Hill Announces Joint Commission Accreditation
Joint Commission grants accreditation to Green Hill’s transitional living and clinical programs!
Green Hill is excited to announce it has earned a Gold Seal of Approval® for both its clinical and transitional living operations Accreditation by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. The accreditation and certification received from the Joint Commission is recognized nationwide as a gold seal of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain national performance, quality, and safety standards. When an individual or family works with an accredited healthcare organization they are making the decision to receive the highest quality of care.
During the accreditation process, the Green Hill team was subjected to intense, thorough review by Joint Commission officials. The objectives of this survey are to evaluate the organization using standards concerning performance and care and to provide education on best practices that will help staff continually improve the organization’s performance. These standards are developed in consultation with health care providers, measurement experts, and patients. They are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help health care organizations measure, assess, and improve performance.
“Our initial plan was to have our clinical operations surveyed and accredited; however, when the Joint Commission surveyor arrived and learned that we operated a transitional living facility, he insisted it be surveyed,” recounts Nick Slovak, Executive Director of Green Hill. “Nick called me to say that the surveyor was going to go to our transitional living facility. He was a little nervous because we hadn’t intended on having it surveyed, but I assured him that his hard work and that of the team would shine through, and it did,” says Tripp Johnson, CEO of Green Hill. This recognition by the Joint Commission is a true testament to the passion and dedication to excellence of the entire Green Hill team. Our organization is honored to earn the Gold Seal of Approval® and looks forward to providing the highest standard of care for years to come.
