Why Joint Commission accreditation?
Joint Commission accreditation is truly a remarkable accomplishment. The Joint Commission for the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations is a national organization that accredits hospitals and surgery centers. The focus of JCAHO is ensuring that the entities which it survey and accredits achieve and maintain the highest possible level of patient safety and patient care excellence.
There are very few office-based cosmetic plastic surgery centers in the United States which hold Joint Commission accreditation; we are the only one in the Triangle area. There are other entities from which outpatient surgery centers may seek accreditation (AAAHC, AAAASF), however the Joint Commission is considered to have the highest standards and to be the most rigorous in its survey activities.
