Mountainlands Community Health Center is proud to be Joint Commission accredited. The Joint Commission is a non-profit organization that accredits and certifies health care organizations across the country. In order to become accredited a health center must meet a set of over 100 specific standards related to the physical environment, human resources, infection control, information management, emergency preparedness, health center leadership, quality improvement processes, and the rights of patients.
Health centers are visited every three years to monitor compliance. In addition, standards are updated semi-annually and organizations are expected to change and improve in order to maintain accreditation. The Joint Commission accreditation is a symbol of excellence in health care and Mountainlands Community Health Center is proud to meet these standards.
