Bayhealth Receives Joint Commission Accreditation


07.31.2013

Bayhealth has received accreditation from The Joint Commission for meeting program requirements in the following areas:

Bayhealth Kent General:
Home Care Accreditation Program
Hospital Accreditation Program
Advanced Certification as a Primary Stroke Center

Bayhealth Milford Memorial:             
Hospital Accreditation Program

The Joint Commission is an independent, not-for-profit national body that oversees the safety and quality of healthcare and other services provided in certified organizations.

The accreditation process involves a rigorous, unannounced on-site survey by a team of Joint Commission experts. This group evaluated Bayhealth for compliance with standards of care related to patient care, leadership, and medication management.

Pursuing Joint Commission accreditation is a voluntary process and is one of the ways Bayhealth seeks to create and maintain a culture of excellence.
