“Brookhaven Retreat thoroughly enjoyed being part of the JCAHO survey,” said Jacqueline Dawes.

The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) is an independent, not-for-profit organization that accredits and certifies more that 19,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States (Joint Commission). This is an important visit for Brookhaven Retreat because being nationally recognized by JCAHO is a symbol of quality and reflects positively on the organizations commitment to meeting certain performance standards.

A JCAHO surveyor was at Brookhaven Retreat during April 4-6, 2012 for an unannounced survey, which is conducted every three years. This is the second survey that has been completed by Brookhaven Retreat.

As a result of the survey conducted, there were no survey findings identified. The official report will be available within 10 days time.

“Brookhaven Retreat thoroughly enjoyed being part of the JCAHO survey,” said Jacqueline Dawes, founder and owner of Brookhaven Retreat.
