When surveyors from The Joint Commission conducted their triennial accreditation survey on August 12 through August 16, 2019, Rosecrance was praised for the quality of their services and the care they provide to clients. Rosecrance has been accredited by The Joint Commission since 1984.
The Joint Commission is a non-for-profit organization that has set healthcare standards for nearly seven decades and valuated other organization’s compliance with those standards. The Joint Commission accreditation survey is the highest possible standard for behavioral health treatment centers.
“We take the observations from The Joint Commission very seriously. We want to be respected as the best and we can only back that up by being credentialed and examined by the best,” says Rosecrance President and Chief Executive Officer, Philip Eaton. “During this process we learn what we do well, where we can improve, and I could not be more proud of the positive feedback we received from this survey.”
The scale and scope of the accreditation process is demanding, comprehensive and arduous. A team of surveyors reviewed 25 Rosecrance sites throughout Illinois and Wisconsin over the course of five days. Surveyors observed and evaluated Rosecrance in categories of quality care, consistency, accountability and safety among both staff and clients.
“This was one of our most impressive surveys yet,” said Eaton. “Our staff truly highlighted the Rosecrance way by demonstrating our evidence-based practices and systems with compassion, knowledge and expertise.”
Rosecrance served nearly 50,000 clients last year and continues to grow and expand to meet community needs and provide as many individuals and families with help, hope and lasting recovery. The accreditation of The Joint Commission allows Rosecrance to continue positioning itself as an expert in behavioral healthcare and a leader for other treatment providers to follow.
