The Joint Commission

Trinity Hospital of Augusta is an accredited hospital by The Joint Commission and will undergo an unannounced accreditation survey every 3 years.

The Joint Commission is an accrediting body with the following mission:

Mission: To continuously improve the safety and quality of care provided to the public through the provision of health care accreditation and related services that support performance improvement in health care organizations.

Accreditation by The Joint Commission is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization's commitment to meeting certain performance standards. To earn and maintain the Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval, an organization must undergo an on-site survey by a Joint Commission survey team at least every three years.

We feel there are many benefits to being a Joint Commission accredited organization.

Benefits include:

  • Leads to continually improving processes related to patient care.
  • Demonstrates the organization's commitment to safety and quality.
  • Supports and enhances safety and quality improvement efforts.
  • Strengthens and supports recruitment and retention efforts.
  • May substitute for federal certification surveys for Medicare and Medicaid.
  • Provides a competitive advantage.

  • Recognized by insurers and other third parties.
