Morton Health Accredited



Morton Comprehensive Health Services has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety in ambulatory health care organizations. The accreditation award recognizes Morton’s dedication to continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s state-of-the-art standards. Morton received the accreditation in 2008 and 2011, also.

A team of Joint Commission expert surveyors evaluated Morton for compliance with standards of care specific to the needs of patients, including infection prevention and control, leadership and medication management.

Morton has also earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety as a primary care medical home (PCMH) for ambulatory health care organizations. The special add-on certification option for accredited ambulatory care organizations recognizes Morton’s dedication to continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s state-of-the-art standards. Morton received its initial accreditation in 2012.

Joint Commission expert surveyors evaluated Morton for compliance with standards related to how effectively the primary care clinician and the interdisciplinary team work in partnership with the patient to provide comprehensive, coordinated and patient-centered care. The Joint Commission’s ambulatory PCMH option helps accredited ambulatory care organizations ensure their patients receive timely and appropriate treatment, increase patient satisfaction, improve patient outcomes, and reduce the overall costs to the health care system.

“We recognize Joint Commission accreditation as the Gold Seal for providing safe, high quality patient care,” says John M. Silva, CEO of Morton. “Achieving accreditation from The Joint Commission is a team effort that will bring confidence to our patients and give us a framework to provide the best care possible.”
