Public Notice on Accreditation
New York Methodist is accredited by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and approved by the Department of Health of the State of New York.
The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations will conduct an accreditation survey of New York Methodist Hospital on an unannounced basis.
The purpose of the survey will be to evaluate the organization's compliance with nationally established Joint Commission standards. The survey results will be used to determine whether, and the conditions under which accreditation should be awarded the organization.
Joint Commission standards deal with organizational quality of care issues and the safety of the environment in which care is provided. Anyone believing that he or she has pertinent and valid information about such matters may request a public information interview with the Joint Commission's field representatives. Information presented at the interview will be carefully evaluated for relevance to the accreditation process. Requests for a public information interview must be made in writing. The requests must also indicate the nature of the information to be provided at the interview. Such requests should be addressed to:
Division of Accreditation Operations
Office of Quality Monitoring
Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations
One Renaissance Boulevard
Oakbrook Terrace, IL 60181
Faxed to 630-792-5636
E-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Joint Commission will acknowledge such request in writing or by telephone and will inform the organization of the request for any interview. The organization will, in turn, notify the interviewee of the date, time, and place of the meeting.
This notice is posted in accordance with the Joint Commission's requirements.
