The Lung Institute earns The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval

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.”

Today, The Joint Commission’s Ambulatory Health Care Accreditation Program serves 2,100 ambulatory care providers with more than 8,500 sites of care which, in turn, serve more than 83 million patient visits annually.

The Joint Commission’s ambulatory health care 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 organizations measure, assess and improve performance.
