Quality Counts

MedSource & JCAHO

MedSource Health Care System was first Accredited and deemed in full compliance with all applicable standards by JCAHO on August 16th, 2006.


Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO)

An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission accredits and certifies more than 15,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards.

JCAHO's mission is to continuously improve the safety and quality of care provided to the public through the provision of health care accreditation and related services that support performance improvement in health care organizations.


What it means to be JCAHO Accredited?

Less than 5% of home health care agencies are accredited by JCAHO in the State of Texas. And, there are less than 3% in the DFW area. This means that MedSource health care is one of the very few that have earned this "Gold Seal" of approval. When seeking a home health care agency for you or your patients, it is important to choose an agency that is committed to providing quality, compassionate care delivered by highly trained professionals.
