The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing clients with safe and effective care. Providence Treatment demonstrates this level of commitment and quality with its care for professionals and executives in need of assessment and treatment for substance use and mental health disorders.
Receiving accreditation from a third party as acclaimed as the Joint Commission is a particularly notable accomplishment.
What Is the Joint Commission?
Since 1951 the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations has sought to continuously improve healthcare for the public through the evaluation of healthcare organizations.
The Joint Commission is the oldest, largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care in the United States. It accredits and certifies more than 21,000 health care organizations and programs. The Joint Commission Gold Seal is widely known as a mark of excellence that recognizes an organization’s adherence to quality standards.
In order to receive this recognition, the Joint Commission reviewed Providence Treatment’s compliance with behavioral health care standards in several areas. These areas include the following:
- Care planning
- Environment of care
- Screening procedures
- Evidence-based outcomes
- Staff credentialing
- Continuing education
- Employee background checks
