Southwest Medical Center Earns Gold Seal of Approval
03/23/2010

Liberal, KS – By demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission's national standards for health care quality and safety, Southwest Medical Center has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™.

Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission is dedicated to continuously improving the safety and quality of the nation's health care through voluntary accreditation. The Joint Commission’s on-site survey of Southwest Medical Center occurred in November 2009.

“Above all, the national standards are intended to stimulate continuous, systematic and organization-wide improvement in an organization’s performance and the outcomes of care,” said Mark Pelletier, R.N., M.S., executive director, Hospital Programs, Accreditation and Certification Services, The Joint Commission. “The community should be proud that Southwest Medical Center is focusing on the most challenging goal ¬- to continuously raise quality and safety to higher levels.”

SWMC CEO/President Norm Lambert spoke of his pride in a staff whose members ask what needs to be done to be accredited by The Joint Commission.

“In addition, they appreciate the educational aspect of the survey and the opportunity to interact with the team of surveyors,” he said.

Lambert called the accreditation, “proof of an organization-wide commitment to provide quality care on an ongoing basis.”
