Concord, NH – New Hampshire Hospital, the State's acute psychiatric care hospital, has received Hospital Accreditation and the Gold Seal of Approval® from The Joint Commission. New Hampshire Hospital earned the Gold Seal of Approval® for health care quality and safety by demonstrating continuous compliance with national performance standards. The Joint Commission, the Nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care, accredits and certifies nearly 21,000 health care organizations and programs in the U.S.

"New Hampshire Hospital is pleased to receive accreditation from The Joint Commission. The staff provides excellent care and treatment day in and day out, and the Gold Star of Approval® reflects their efforts," said Robert J. MacLeod, DHA, FACHE, CEO of New Hampshire Hospital. "These survey results are proof of an organization-wide commitment to providing quality care in order to meet the needs of those who come to us for care. We look forward to continuing to offer these critical services."

New Hampshire Hospital underwent a rigorous, unannounced, on-site survey over four days in September 2015, conducted by a team of Joint Commission expert surveyors, including a physician, nurse administrator, and life safety specialist. The survey team reviewed documents, patient records, and hospital practices during unit-based tours and meetings with staff and patients. The survey evaluated compliance with standards related to all areas of hospital operations, including leadership, planning, human resources, the provision of care, patient rights, information management, performance improvement, life safety, and the environment of care. New Hampshire Hospital uses accreditation for deemed status purposes by meeting all related hospital conditions of participation in the federal Medicare and Medicaid programs.
