More Seasons Hospice locations provide care by Joint Commission

 

Three more Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care locations were recognized for a “deep abiding commitment to quality end-of-life care” during a series of site surveys by a Joint Commission surveyor, according to The Joint Commission’s website: Phoenix, AZ, Orange, CA and St. Louis, MO service areas. Eleven Seasons Hospice locations are now accredited by the Joint Commission.

“It is a credit to the experience of the excellent staff that we have assembled that we were able to have such good results in our initial survey,” said Royle Schmidt, Executive Director of Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care of Arizona.  “We are very proud of this accreditation and the confidence it provides our clientele, that Seasons Hospice provides care at the highest level.” 

”We are making a significant investment in quality on a day-to-day basis from the top down. This accreditation provides us a framework to take our organization to the next level,” says Dawn Mullins, RN, Missouri site Executive Director. “For our organization, this is a major step toward maintaining excellence and continually improving the care we provide to patients and families in the greater St. Louis area.  We have received a very warm welcome by the community and we are excited to offer new programs and services that previously have not been available in this area."

Organizations must abide by state-of-the-art standards that focus on patient safety and quality of care.

“This fits well with our mission to strive for excellence beyond accepted standards,” adds Gina Andres, MSW, Executive Director of Seasons Hospice in Orange County.
