What is Gold Seal Accreditation?
Joint Commission Gold Seal accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards. All Tanner Health System hospitals have earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s (TJC’s) national standards for healthcare quality and safety in hospitals. The accreditation awards Tanner Health System’s dedication to continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s standards.
Tanner Health System hospitals underwent a rigorous unannounced on-site survey. A team of TJC expert surveyors evaluated Tanner Health System hospitals for compliance with standards of care specific to the needs of patients, including infection prevention and control, leadership and medication management.
