    Joint Commission Accreditation


    At least once every three years Novant Health Forsyth Region practices undergo a rigorous approval process by the Joint Commission for Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). JCAHO is an independent, not-for-profit organization which sets the standards by which healthcare quality is measured in America and around the world. Our practices are among the nearly 16,000 healthcare organizations that JCAHO evaluated for the quality and safety of care.

    To maintain and earn accreditation, some practices undergo an extensive on-site review by a team of JCAHO healthcare professionals. The purpose of the review is to evaluate the organization's performance in areas that affect your care. Accreditation may be awarded based on how well the organizations met JCAHO standards.

    Our parent company, Novant Health, has been nationally recognized as the "Best in Industry for Working Mothers" by Working Mother magazine and one of the "Top 40 Family-Friendly NC Companies" by Charlotte Parent and Piedmont Parent magazines. Additionally, Novant Health was named to the 2002 SMG Top 100 Integrated Healthcare Networks in the country.
