The Joint Commission serves to help ensure and monitor the quality outcomes and patient safety of patient care in hospitals. Our organization is committed to providing safe and quality care to all patients served.
The Joint Commission accreditation means that a hospital voluntarily sought accreditation and met national health, quality, and safety standards. We understand how important reliable information is to you and your family when making healthcare decisions. Visit The Joint Commission website to learn more about quality and safety in healthcare at www.jointcommission.org.
The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations will conduct an accreditation survey of San Antonio Regional Hospital as part of our ongoing accreditation process. On-site visits are scheduled every three years. The last on-site survey was in 2012. The next survey event is planned for 2015. The Joint Commission has implemented unannounced surveys. We will not receive advanced notice of their impending visit. In the past, we have published an announcement at least thirty days in advance of the survey. We are presently unable to do that because of the unannounced surveys. Instead, we will carry this notice on our website so that our customers can be aware of how to contact the Joint Commission and request the opportunity to have input into the survey process.
The purpose of the survey will be to evaluate the organization's compliance with nationally-established The Joint Commission standards. The survey results will be used to determine whether, and the conditions under which, accreditation should be awarded the organization.
The Joint Commission standards deal with organizational quality of care issues and the safety of the environment in which care is provided. Patients and caregivers can notify our company or The Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations about recommendations or concerns they have with regard to improving patient safety, employee safety, or quality of care. Such notifications should be addressed to Quality Management Department at this company's address or to

The requests must also indicate the nature of the information regarding quality of care, patient safety, or employee safety to be provided at the interview. Such requests should be addressed to
The Joint Commission will acknowledge such request in writing by telephone and will inform the organization of the request for any interview. The organization will, in turn, notify the interviewee of the date, time, and place of the meeting.
