By demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission's national standards for health care quality and safety, Columbia Memorial Hospital has earned the Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval.

"In becoming accredited, CMH Home Care Services was evaluated against a set of national standards by a team of Joint Commission surveyors experienced in the delivery of home care services," says Debra Zak, executive director, Home Care Accreditation, The Joint Commission. "Achieving accreditation demonstrates CMH Home Health's commitment to provide high quality and safe care to its patients." The Joint Commission's on-site survey of CMH occurred in October 2008.
