University of Missouri Health Care participates in the Joint Commission's accreditation process. This process is designed to help hospitals continuously provide safe, high-quality care, treatment and services by identifying opportunities for improvement. University of Missouri Health Care uses the accreditation process as a continuous standards compliance and operational improvement tool.
The Joint Commission conducted an unannounced accreditation survey in April 2010 University of Missouri Health Care was given accreditation for all services surveyed. This accreditation cycle is effective beginning April 2010 and is valid for up to 36 months. However, the Joint Commission reserves the right to shorten or lengthen the duration of this cycle.
The Joint Commission uses information from a variety of sources to improve the quality and safety of the more than 18,000 health care organizations it accredits and certifies. One of these sources is complaints from patients, their families, government agencies and the public, as well as from an organization's own staff and the media.
