Appalachian Regional Healthcare is accredited by Joint Commission. Joint Commission standards are "evidence based" on a national level to ensure our patients receive the highest level of safety and quality of care we can deliver.
As of January 1, 2006, the survey process has been "unannounced" to all healthcare facilities. The purpose of these surveys is to evaluate our organization's compliance and assess our ability to continuously give patients the quality of care they deserve.
If you have any recommendations for better patient care, you are encouraged to contact your local Hospital Administration Department for discussion. Any input you have to help us improve the safety and quality of care for our patients is appreciated.
If we are unable to resolve or implement your recommendations, you are welcome to contact The Joint Commission at (630) 792-5636 or visit their website at www.jointcommission.org.
