Quality is our top priority. At Baptist Health we strive to provide excellent care, every time. We are proudly accredited by the Joint Commission, the nation’s oldest and largest standard-setting and accrediting body in healthcare. In 2011, we received the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval. The accreditation award recognizes Baptist Health”s dedication to complying with the Joint Commission’s state-of-the-art standards on a continuous basis.
As part of our commitment to quality, Baptist Health has established a Quality and Safety Committee made up of physicians and members of the Board of Directors. This committee assists Baptist Health in achieving our quality goals.
Each quarter, Baptist Health shares our Quality Report. This report compares our performance with the average level of performance of other hospitals in Kentucky and across the nation. These healthcare indicators are being tracked nationally by hospitals in association with a quality program coordinated by the Centers for Medicare / Medicaid Services.
