We, at the Lung Institute, are proud to announce we have earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Ambulatory Health Care Accreditation. This prestigious accreditation is given to organizations that demonstrate continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s nationally recognized standards.
The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of high quality that reflects our commitment to providing safe and effective patient care.
Unannounced December Review
The accreditation review process began with a rigorous, unannounced onsite survey from Dec. 4-6, 2017. During the review, a Joint Commission surveyor experienced in ambulatory health care, evaluated compliance with ambulatory care standards, including coordination of care, monitoring for procedures that involve use of sedation or anesthesia, infection prevention and control, management of medications, and patient education and training.
“The Lung Institute is pleased to receive accreditation from The Joint Commission, the premier health care quality improvement and accrediting body in the nation,” said Jimmy St. Louis, founder and CEO of Regenerative Medicine Solutions. “Our team is passionate and committed to a patient-first approach and bringing together leaders in the regenerative medicine and wellness communities that improve the lives of those suffering from chronic lung disorders.”
