The Podiatric OR of Midtown Manhattan, PC 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 for office-based surgery. The accreditation award recognizes the Podiatric OR of Midtown Manhattan’s dedication to continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s state of the art standards. The OR, located at 25 W 45th Street, Ste 1407, NY 10036, 212-704-4310, operates as part of Adler Footcare of Greater New York, PC.
“Patients across the United States are increasingly receiving care in an office setting, and a practice that has received accreditation from The Joint Commission has successfully complied with the highest standards for quality and safety,” said Michael Kulczycki, executive director, Ambulatory Care Accreditation, The Joint Commission. “I congratulate The Podiatric OR of Midtown Manhattan for successfully taking this challenge and for its dedication to continually improving patient care.” Pursuing accreditation comes without the regulatory requirement imposed by NYS on most other medical disciplines and emphasizes Adler’s commitment to quality patient care services.
