Methodist Fayette Hospital was recently re-accredited with The Joint Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety. The accreditation award recognizes Fayette’s dedication to complying with the Joint Commission’s state-of-the-art standards on a continuous basis.

"Our staff worked diligently to achieve this accreditation," said David Crislip, Methodist Fayette Hospital administrator. "Their hard work and dedication will ultimately provide the safest and highest quality care for our patients."

"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," says Mark Pelletier, R.N., M.S., executive director, Hospital Programs, Accreditation and Certification Services, The Joint Commission. "The community should be proud that Methodist Fayette Hospital is focusing on the most challenging goal—to continuously raise quality and safety to higher levels."

Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission seeks to continuously improve healthcare for the public, in collaboration with other stakeholders, by evaluating health care organizations and inspiring them to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value. An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission is the nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.
