The Joint Commission works with more hospitals than any other accrediting organization – accrediting 80% of hospitals and 27% of critical access hospitals in the U.S. Our educational, collaborative survey will soon be available to more organizations in rural communities through the new Rural Health Clinic accreditation program.
The Rural Health Clinic program was developed to help improve quality and safety for patients in rural communities seeking preventive and specialized outpatient care. Accreditation will be available beginning in January 2024. Organizations who want to be among the first to be surveyed may submit a pre-application beginning July 2023.
