Joint Commission Public Notices on Accreditation

New York Community Hospital is accredited by The Joint Commission (TJC) and approved by the Department of Health, State of New York. In calendar year 2015, The Joint Commission will conduct an unannounced accreditation survey at our hospital.

The purpose of the survey will be to evaluate the organization's compliance with nationally established Joint Commission standards. The survey results will be used to determine whether, and the conditions under which, accreditation should be awarded the organization.

Joint Commission standards deal with organization quality, safety-of-care issues, and the safety of the environment in which care is provided. Anyone believing that he or she has pertinent and valid information about such matters should first contact the organization's management smm9003@nyp.org. If the concerns cannot be resolved, the individual may request a public information interview with the Joint Commission's field representatives at the time of the survey. Information presented at the interview will be carefully evaluated for relevance to the accreditation process. Requests for a public information interview must be made in writing and should be sent to the Joint Commission’s Office of Quality Monitoring. The request must indicate the nature of the information to be provided at the interview. Such requests should be addressed to
