Zufall Health Awarded Accreditation from The Joint Commission

Zufall Health announced its first-ever accreditation by The Joint Commission, the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care. The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Ambulatory Health Care Accreditation recognizes Zufall’s ongoing commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.

The accreditation follows a rigorous, three-day evaluation of multiple Zufall sites. During the visits, a team of Joint Commission reviewers evaluated compliance with Ambulatory Health Care standards spanning several areas including patient rights, patient satisfaction, emergency preparedness, infection prevention and control, risk management, and quality improvement. The surveyors also conducted onsite observations and interviews.

The Joint Commission’s standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. They are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help health care organizations measure, assess and improve performance.
