Full Accreditation Awarded
The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations has awarded full accreditation status to the David Grant Medical Center at Travis Air Force Base for another three years.
The award is the result of a recent combined survey with the Air Force's own Health Services Inspection.
The Joint Commission evaluates and accredits more than 15,000 health-care organizations and programs in the United States. The accreditation is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization's commitment to meeting certain performance standards.
"The Joint Commission was very impressed with the level of health-care services provided by Team DGMC," stated Col. Byron Hepburn, a medical doctor and commander of the 60th Medical Group. "Their direct quote is, 'You have a fine hospital here,' " said Hepburn. "Our ability to continue to provide high-quality health-care to those entrusted to our care has been fully validated by the Joint Commission."
Additionally, the Air Force Inspection Agency team performed a rigorous look at many of David Grant's operational support functions, which include leadership, operational medicine, medical readiness, deployment preparation and support operations, public health and bioenvironmental functions, resource management and business planning, dental operations, behavioral health and community programs.
Four areas received an outstanding rating: dentistry, behavioral health, community support and support to general medical education programs.
In addition, seven areas were rated as excellent: deployment processing, workplace surveillance, epidemiology and public health surveillance, clinical services, executive oversight, human resource management and business planning, and revised financing.
