High Point Regional Health System Awarded Joint Commission Certification
High Point Regional Health System’s Stroke Center has earned the Gold Seal of Approval for health care quality.
The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations awarded High Point Regional the Disease Specific Care Certification for Stroke Center designation.
This certification means that High Point Regional does the right things and does them well for Stroke Center patients,” says Charles A Mowll, executive vice president, with the Joint Commission. The evaluation is against Joint Commission standards through an assessment of the program’s processes, ability to evaluate and improve care within its own organization, and interviews with patients and staff.
“High Point Regional voluntarily pursued this comprehensive, independent evaluation to enhance the safety and quality of care we provide,” says Martha Barham, Vice President. “We’re proud to achieve this distinction, and we’re proud of the Stroke Center Team.”
The Joint Commission launched its Disease-Specific Care certification program in 2002, and is the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.
