By demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety, First Choice Emergency Room has earned the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ and becomes the first freestanding emergency room system in the nation to receive this prestigious award.
“Accreditation by The Joint Commission sets First Choice Emergency Room apart,” says Michael Kulczycki, executive director, Ambulatory Care Accreditation Program, The Joint Commission. “Organizations awarded this Gold Seal of Approval™ dedicate themselves to continuous operational improvement.”
As emergency medicine continues to change and more free standing facilities emerge, First Choice Emergency Room is setting the standard for all other freestanding emergency rooms to meet. The accreditation award recognizes First Choice Emergency Room’s dedication to complying with the Joint Commission’s state-of-the-art standards on a continuous basis and change how emergency medicine is delivered in the United States.
Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission seeks to continuously improve the safety and quality of care provided to the public through the provision of health care accreditation and related services that support performance improvement in health care organizations. An independent, not-for-profit organization, the Joint Commission is the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care. Since 1975, the Joint Commission has developed state-of-the-art standards for outpatient ambulatory care organizations.
