The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval signifies that the recipient organization has demonstrated continuous compliance with the commission’s performance standards. According to The Joint Commission, The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a healthcare organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.
“This award and others like it that we have received underscore our dedication to providing high-quality healthcare to the community. I’d like to thank everyone involved with this effort for their dedication to our patients and for doing a terrific job in helping us maintain full certification of our program,” said Marc P. Hurowitz, DO, MBA, FAAFP, executive director of the TUH–Jeanes Campus.
The campus underwent a rigorous virtual review. During the virtual visit, a Joint Commission Reviewer evaluated compliance with standards spanning several areas. The Joint Commission’s standards are developed in consultation with healthcare experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. They are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help healthcare organizations measure, assess, and improve performance.
“As a private accreditor, The Joint Commission surveys healthcare organizations to protect the public by identifying deficiencies in care and working with those organizations to correct them as quickly and sustainably as possible,” says Mark Pelletier, RN, MS, chief operating officer, Accreditation and Certification Operations, and chief nursing executive, The Joint Commission. “We commend TUH–Jeanes Campus for its continuous quality improvement efforts in patient safety and quality of care.”
