Oswego Hospital has been accredited by The Joint Commission following a four-day survey conducted by the national standards organization.
The Joint Commission visited Oswego Hospital in June.
The surveyors did recommend improvements and Oswego Hospital is in the process of making those improvements.
Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission seeks to continuously improve health care for the public, in collaboration with other stakeholders, by evaluating health care organizations and inspiring them to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value.
The Joint Commission evaluates and accredits more than 20,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States.
An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission is the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.
To earn and maintain The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval, an organization must undergo an on-site survey by a Joint Commission survey team at least every three years.
