    Kindred Rehabilitation Hospital Northeast Houston Awarded Stroke Rehabilitation Hospital Certification by Joint Commission
    Oct 01, 2015

    Kindred Rehabilitation Hospital Northeast Houston is proud to announce that we have earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Stroke Rehabilitation Hospital Certification. The Gold Seal of Approval is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective patient care.

    Kindred Rehabilitation Hospital underwent a rigorous on-site review in September. Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with national disease-specific care standards as well as with stroke specific requirements. Clinical practice guidelines and performance measures also were assessed.

    Established in 2002 and awarded for a two-year period, The Joint Commission’s Disease-Specific Care Certification evaluates clinical programs across the continuum of care and addresses three core areas:

    • Compliance with consensus-based national standards
    • Effective use of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines to manage and optimize care
    • An organized approach to performance measurement and improvement activities.
