Northbound is honored to announce that it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Behavioral Health Care Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective care.
Northbound joins more than 2,250 organizations across the country that are currently accredited by The Joint Commission. “Joint Commission accreditation provides behavioral health care organizations with the processes needed to improve in a variety of areas related to the care of individuals and their families,” said Tracy Griffin Collander, LCSW, executive director, Behavioral Health Care Accreditation Program, The Joint Commission. “We commend Northbound for its efforts to elevate the standard of care it provides and to instill confidence in the community it serves.”
Earning this accreditation was a joint effort between employees and leadership at Northbound’s locations in California and St. Louis. It was through their dedication and commitment to providing safe, high quality care that this accomplishment was possible. During this process, both Northbound sites underwent rigorous onsite surveys, observations, and interviews to assess compliance with behavioral health care standards for care, treatment, and services; environment of care; leadership; and screening procedures for the early detection of imminent harm.
“The significance of this three year accreditation for both California and St. Louis cannot be overstated and is further evidence of the commitment that each and every member of our team has to our mission, vision, and values,” said Michael Neatherton, Chief Executive Officer of Northbound.
