Brookdale Premier Addiction Recovery earns The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval®
Scotrun, PA, November 25, 2019: We are proud to announce Brookdale Premier Addiction Recovery has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Behavioral Health Accreditation. This means Brookdale has met The Joint Commission’s rigorous standards for effective integration and coordination of medical detox and behavioral health care services.
How the Behavioral Health Certification Process Works
Brookdale underwent an extensive onsite review in mid-November. During the multiple day visit, a Joint Commission reviewer evaluated compliance with Behavioral Health standards spanning several areas including emergency management, environment of care, leadership, and the rights and responsibilities of the individual.
The Joint Commission’s standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. They are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help health care organizations measure, assess and improve performance. The surveyors also conducted onsite observations and interviews.
“As a private accreditor, The Joint Commission surveys health care organizations to protect the public by identifying deficiencies in care and working with those organizations to correct them as quickly and sustainably as possible,” says Mark Pelletier, RN, MS, Chief Operating Officer, Accreditation and Certification Operations, and Chief Nursing Executive of The Joint Commission. “We commend Brookdale Premier Addiction Recovery for its continuous quality improvement efforts in patient safety and quality of care.”
“I’m extremely proud of our team,” shared Joe Mattioli, Chief Operating Officer & Executive Director of Brookdale Premier Addiction Recovery. “I knew we had assembled a passionate, extremely qualified and committed group of professionals and support staff. The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® is a magnificent and official confirmation of that.”
