Joint Commission

Accredited by The Joint Commission

Clinica Sierra Vista is accredited by the Joint Commission, an independent, nonprofit organization that sets the standard for excellence in healthcare in the United States. The exemplary care provided by our medical, dental and behavioral health teams as well as our rigorous attention to safety and accountability recently earned Clinica its seventh three-year reaccreditation. 

 

Deepening our commitment to those we serve, Clinica has become a Patient Centered Medical Home, a designation bestowed by the Joint Commission to healthcare organizations that put patients in control of their healthcare decisions, in partnership with a team of medical providers. By encouraging - even insisting - that patients become fully involved in their care goals and decisions, PCMH represents an evolution in the philosophy and delivery of healthcare.

 

Opening ourselves to Joint Commission scrutiny is entirely voluntary, but we believe the exacting reaccreditation process and adherence to PCMH standards makes us better. We're proud of our gold seal because it reaffirms to us and our patients that we hold ourselves to the highest possible standards. 

 

Health care organizations seek Joint Commission accreditation because it enhances community confidence, provides a report card for the public, offers an objective evaluation of the organization's performance, aids in professional staff recruitment, provides a staff education tool and often fulfills state licensure requirements.
