Aware Recovery Care of Florida has just earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for both Home Care and Behavioral Health Care by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective care.
Aware Recovery Care underwent a rigorous onsite survey in November 2019. During the survey, compliance with home care and behavioral health care standards reflecting key organization areas were evaluated, including the provision of care, treatment and services, emergency management, human resources, individual rights and responsibilities, and leadership.
Established in 1988, The Joint Commission’s Home Care Accreditation Program supports the efforts of its accredited organizations to help deliver safe, high quality care and services. More than 6,000 home care programs currently maintain accreditation, awarded for a three-year period, from The Joint Commission.
“Aware Recovery Care of Florida is pleased to receive dual accreditation from The Joint Commission, the premier health care quality improvement and accrediting body in the nation,” added Steven Randazzo of Aware Recovery Care. “Staff from across our organization continue to work together to strengthen the continuum of care and to deliver and maintain optimal services for those in our community.”
The Joint Commission’s home care and behavioral health standards are developed in consultation with health care experts, home care providers and researchers, as well as industry experts, purchasers and consumers. The standards are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help organizations measure, assess and improve performance.
