The Joint Commission, an independent, nonprofit organization that accredits health care organizations across the country, conducts periodic accreditation surveys at Columbus Community Hospital.
The purpose of these surveys is to evaluate the organization’s compliance with nationally established Joint Commission standards.
The survey results are used to determine whether, and the conditions under which, accreditation should be awarded to Columbus Community Hospital.
Joint Commission standards deal with organizational quality of care issues and the safety of the environment in which care is provided. Health care organizations that are accredited or certified by the Joint Commission are known for their commitment to providing safe, high-quality health care. To ensure continuing compliance with the Joint Commission's nationally recognized health care standards, CCH’s accreditation is reviewed at three-year intervals.
As a patient, family member, community representative or employee of Columbus Community Hospital, you have the right to notify the Joint Commission regarding any concern about the quality of care provided, safety of care provided, or the safety of the environment in which care is provided. Anyone believing that he or she has pertinent and valid information about such matters should notify the Joint Commission using the contact information below.
