ECMCC awarded hospital accreditation

Erie County Medical Center Corporation (ECMCC) announced in November it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for its full hospital accreditation for a three-year period by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The gold seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a healthcare organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.

“On behalf of the ECMC Corporation board of directors, I thank the Joint Commission for this important accreditation that confirms ECMC’s strong adherence to rigorous national standards for delivery of quality healthcare services,” said  ECMCC Chairman Jonathan A. Dandes. “As important, I congratulate ECMC’s leadership team and all of its physicians, nurses, and staff who every day ensure the very best care for our community, one patient at a time. ECMC continues to evolve and grow, building on its strong legacy of clinical excellence and surveys conducted by national entities like the Joint Commission that lead to full hospital accreditation is further evidence of the fulfillment of our mission – to provide every patient the highest quality of care delivered with compassion.”
