The Hemophilia Treatment Center and the Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada in Las Vegas and Reno, programs of the Cure 4 The Kids Foundation received the coveted Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval(TM) Accreditation in 2012.
Only a small number of outpatient centers across the country have gone through this kind of evaluation, fewer still have received the accreditation.
The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval(TM) accreditation is a milestone for the two centers as well as for the community at large. The Joint Commission survey is considered by most in the medical community to be the most stringent examination of health care standards, practices and policies in existence.
Secondly, it assures patients that while they may receive free or low cost care at The Children’s Specialty Center or the Hemophilia Treatment Center, they are also receiving the best care, as determined by The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval(TM).
The Joint Commission’s state of the art standards require that patient care is provided in a safe manner and also measures the organization’s performance in specific areas. The standards are based on consultation with health care experts, providers and researchers. Obtaining this accreditation indicates the organization is committed to the highest level of patient safety and care by meeting the rigorous performance standards.
