Every three years, The Joint Commission performs an unannounced inspection of the Johns Hopkins Health System hospitals to ensure we are meeting quality and safety performance standards for our patients. At The Johns Hopkins Hospital, this routine survey was completed last week over a period of four days.
In its tradition of excellence, the hospital repeatedly impressed surveyors with its pursuit of delivering safe and compassionate care to the patients we serve. But even more, its physicians and staff—including those in the Department of Medicine—demonstrated how they go above and beyond for each patient that walks through our doors.
Although we are waiting for the official report, all indications suggest that JHH received a high score, further exemplifying its inclusion among the best hospitals in the world. This is no small achievement particularly given the size of our hospital, the vast array of services we provide and the number of complex changes we are experiencing.
Without you and your daily dedication to our patients, The Joint Commission's survey would not have been so complimentary. Thank you and congratulations to all for a job well done!
