Harmony Awarded Prestigious Post-Acute Care Certification & Nursing Care Accreditation from Joint Commission

This advanced certification and accreditation recognizes Harmony’s high standards for health care quality and safety in post-hospital rehabilitation services and nursing care — as well as for infection prevention and control, leadership and medication management.
“By receiving the Joint Commission’s Post-Acute Care Certification and Nursing Care Accreditation,” says Harmony Administrator Allen Hollander, “we’re showing our commitment to providing a higher standard of clinical and nursing care with impressive outcomes.”
Harmony voluntarily chose to undergo the rigorous scrutiny of The Joint Commission’s inspectors using standards that go beyond federal and state requirements. These state-of-the-art standards address crucial functions of patient care and are developed by industry experts, providers and measurement experts.
The Joint Commission’s Post-Acute Care Certification and Nursing Care Accreditation help Harmony guests receive an exceptional healthcare experience with focused outcomes. It also allows Harmony to remain as a leading provider of post-hospital rehabilitation with clinically acclaimed therapy and nursing services.
This special award for post-acute care is in addition to the “National Quality Approval” accreditation Harmony has already received from the Joint Commission.
