Tomball Regional Medical Center (TRMC) has earned The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval for accreditation, by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission's national standards for health care quality and safety in hospitals. The accreditation award recognizes TRMC's dedication to continuous compliance with The Joint Commission's state-of-the-art standards.
"In achieving Joint Commission accreditation, we have demonstrated our commitment to maintain excellence and continually improve the care we provide," said Bud Wethington, CEO of Tomball Regional Medical Center. "Joint Commission accreditation provides us a framework to take our organization to the next level and helps create a culture of safety and excellence."
TRMC underwent a rigorous on-site survey last December. A team of Joint Commission expert surveyors evaluated TRMC for compliance with standards of care specific to the needs of patients, including infection prevention and control, leadership and medication management.
The Joint Commission's hospital standards address important functions relating to the care of patients and the management of hospitals. The standards are developed in consultation with health care experts, providers, measurement experts and patients.
"I am extremely proud of all of our accomplishments in 2012 and look forward to more safety and quality accolades in 2013 and beyond," said Wethington.
