Joint Commission

The Joint Commission is an independent body dedicated to continuously improving the safety and quality of the nation’s health care through voluntary accreditation. The Joint Commission’s last on-site survey of Howard County General Hospital occurred in April 2013. Accreditation is customarily valid for up to 36 months. By demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety, Howard County General Hospital earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™.

Howard County General Hospital is committed to providing the highest quality care to our patients. Accreditation is a continuous process, providing insight into the hospital’s daily operations and systems. The unannounced survey process is a validation of HCGH’s continuous improvement efforts.
