The Greater Meridian Health Clinic Inc. in Meridian has achieved ambulatory care accreditation from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.
The clinic was evaluated against a set of national standards by a joint commission team experienced in the delivery of ambulatory health care services, said Mike Dye, associate director of the joint commission.
Achieving accreditation demonstrates the clinic's commitment to provide high quality care to its patients.
Dr. Olugboyega Ransome-Kuti, GMHC's clinical team leader, said, "Our staff is very supportive of the process. It gives them a feeling of prestige to work in an accredited organization. They also appreciate the educational aspect of the survey and the opportunity to interact with the joint commission team."
The commission also evaluated the laboratory's performance in complying with nearly 300 standards related to quality control, safety, infection control, leadership, management of human resources, management of information, ongoing performance improvement activities and other issues.
Jones said efforts to improve won't stop when the commission survey is over.
An independent, nonprofit organization, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations is the predominant standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.
Since 1975, the commission has developed state-of-the-art standards for outpatient ambulatory care organizations. More than 1,100 free-standing ambulatory care organizations maintain commission standards.
The Greater Meridian Health Clinic Inc. has five locations in four counties, including one in Meridian the main office. All have been accredited by the commission.
