Growth Works has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Case Management, Diversion and Clinical Treatment Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.
Growth Works underwent a rigorous, unannounced onsite review in August. During the visit, a team of Joint Commission reviewers evaluated compliance with standards spanning several areas including client care, emergency management, suicide prevention, environment of care, infection prevention and control, COVID 19 precautions, leadership, and rights and responsibilities of the individual.
“As a private accreditor, The Joint Commission surveys health care organizations to protect the public by identifying deficiencies in care and working with those organizations to correct them as quickly and sustainably as possible,” says Mark Pelletier, RN, MS, chief operating officer, Accreditation and Certification Operations, and chief nursing executive, The Joint Commission. “We commend Growth Works for its continuous quality improvement efforts in patient safety and quality of care.”
The Joint Commission’s standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. They are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help health care organizations measure, assess and improve performance. The surveyors also conducted onsite observations and interviews.
“We are proud of our Joint Commission Accreditation and want to thank the team for all of their hard work to ensure we provide the highest quality services to those who receive care at Growth Works,” says Nick Griswold, Growth Works CEO. “It is our mission to ensure the best in all of our services and the Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval ensures we have met that standard.”
