Commitment to Quality
New Jersey Urology (NJU) is proud to announce that it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for healthcare quality and safety in ambulatory care organizations. Of note, NJU is the first urology physician practice in the United States to earn this prestigious accreditation.
The award recognizes NJU’s dedication to continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s state-of-the-art standards. An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission is the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in healthcare.
NJU underwent a rigorous unannounced on-site survey in March of 2012. A team of Joint Commission expert surveyors visited all 12 office locations and evaluated NJU for compliance with standards of care specific to the needs of patients, including prevention of infection, leadership and medication management.
“We recognize Joint Commission accreditation as the Gold Seal for providing safe, high quality patient care. Achieving accreditation from The Joint Commission is a team effort that will bring confidence to our patients and give us a framework to provide the best care possible,” says NJU President Dr. Alan Krieger. “By receiving this accreditation award, New Jersey Urology is now one of the first physician practices in the nation to achieve this status.”
Michael Kulczycki, executive director, Ambulatory Care Accreditation Program, The Joint Commission, says, “Organizations that strive for accreditation in ambulatory care from The Joint Commission are demonstrating the highest commitment to quality and safety to their patients, staff and their community. I commend the New Jersey Urology for successfully achieving this pinnacle and for its dedication to continually improving patient care.”
