These awards signify our commitment and dedication to provide the highest quality of care and services to our patients. We voluntarily undergo extensive on-site surveys of all our facilities, equipment and services. The survey teams are composed of physicians, para-medical professionals and/or health care administrators. The surveyors evaluate our organization against national standards and the survey findings have resulted in favorable decisions from all three accrediting bodies. These extensive surveys occur every three years by each of the accrediting bodies and our patients are the ultimate benefactors as we continue to pursue the highest level of quality performance possible.

Our organization strives to provide high quality of care and services to our patients. If you have any concerns regarding patient safety and quality of care you may contact the Joint Commission without any retaliatory action from the organization.
