Joint Commission Accreditation
Podiatric OR of Midtown Manhattan, PC earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval
We are proud to announce that in February of 2014 our Podiatric OR of Midtown Manhattan, PC was awarded The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety for office-based surgery.
The Podiatric OR received its initial accreditation in April of 2011 when Jeffrey L. Adler, DPM, Board-Certified Medical/Surgical Director and President, led his team through the intense process of complying with the rigorous safety, quality, treatment and service standards set by the Joint Commission. The task of retaining accreditation is used as a continuous standards compliance and operations improvement tool throughout the 3-year cycle.
The accreditation award recognizes the Podiatric OR of Midtown Manhattan’s dedication to continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s state of the art standards. Our Podiatric OR is located at 25 W 45th Street, Ste 402.
"Patients across the United States are increasingly receiving care in an office setting, and a practice that has received accreditation from The Joint Commission has successfully complied with the highest standards for quality and safety,” said Michael Kulczycki, executive director, Ambulatory Care Accreditation, The Joint Commission. "I congratulate The Podiatric OR of Midtown Manhattan for successfully taking this challenge and for its dedication to continually improving patient care.” Pursuing accreditation comes without the regulatory requirement imposed by NYS on most other medical disciplines and emphasizes Dr. Adler’s commitment to quality patient care services.
The Joint Commission introduced office-based surgery standards in 2001 to provide oversight for small practices performing invasive procedures.
"We recognize Joint Commission re-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.” Said Dr. Jeffrey Adler, Medical/Surgical Director and owner of both the Podiatric OR of Midtown Manhattan and Adler Footcare of Greater New York.
