CentraState Medical Center is proud to announce that it has once again earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Hospital Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective patient care.

CentraState Medical Center underwent a rigorous, unannounced on-site survey during which a team of Joint Commission expert surveyors evaluated compliance with hospital standards related to several areas, including emergency management, environment of care, infection prevention and control, leadership, and medication management. Surveyors also conducted on-site observations and interviews.

The Joint Commission has accredited hospitals for more than 60 years. More than 4,000 general, children’s, long-term acute, psychiatric, rehabilitation and specialty hospitals currently maintain accreditation from The Joint Commission, awarded for a three-year period.

“Achieving Joint Commission accreditation validates that CentraState has demonstrated a commitment to providing the highest level of patient care,” says John Gribbin, president and CEO, CentraState Healthcare System. “This measure of success also speaks volumes about the significant efforts of our entire clinical team, and is a major step toward maintaining our mission of excellence and continually improving the comprehensive care we provide patients right here in our community.”

The Joint Commission’s hospital standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts, and patients. The standards are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help hospitals measure, assess and improve performance.
