Advanced Health underwent the Joint Commission’s rigorous on-site survey in October 2015. Among other things, the Joint Commission performed a detailed review of the organization’s compliance with its standards in the delivery of behavioral health care, treatment, and services to clients; client care planning; facility leadership; and, screening procedures for early detection of factors that could impact client safety. There was also a stringent assessment of Advanced Health’s human resources operations.

“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 of the Joint Commission’s Behavioral Health Care Accreditation division. “We commend Advanced Health and Education for its efforts to elevate the standard of care it provides and to instill confidence in the community it serves.”

I’d like to personally thank the Joint Commission for giving us the opportunity to prove ourselves, and the exceptional team at Advanced Health for the continuous hard work that made this distinction a reality.”
