American Health Partners announced today that AHC Clarksville, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center in Clarksville, Tennessee, has received the Gold Seal of Approval from The Joint Commission. The Gold Seal is only awarded to health care organizations who achieve the highest national benchmarks for patient safety and quality of care. All American Health Communities (AHC) skilled nursing facilities are accredited by The Joint Commission. Currently, fewer than 30% of skilled nursing communities in Tennessee have earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval.
The AHC Clarksville earned accreditation following rigorous reviews of its practices by evaluators from The Joint Commission. Evaluators ensured that the skilled nursing facility met the highest quality standards in provision of care, treatment and services, as well as infection prevention and control, medication management and emergency procedures.
“We’ve always been proud of our teams’ commitment to quality care, but it is even more gratifying when their accomplishments are recognized by a highly regarded independent organization like The Joint Commission,” said Michael Bailey, CEO of American Health Partners. “This accreditation is important to our residents and their families because it lets them know they can trust AHC to deliver great care today and in the future.”
The Joint Commission’s standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, quality assurance professionals and patients. They are backed by scientific literature and expert consensus as effective means to help health care organizations measure, assess and maintain continuous quality improvement.
“I’m very proud of our team for all of their hard work, collaboration and commitment to excellence which enabled us to earn this important accreditation,” said Bob Collins, Administrator at AHC Clarksville. “As this accreditation shows, our team at AHC Clarksville is focused on continuous improvement and meeting the highest standards for delivering safe, quality care to our residents and patients each and every day.”
“We have all faced a lot of challenges managing through the pandemic and earning this prestigious accreditation from The Joint Commission gives us something to celebrate,” said Greg Haynes, vice president of operations for AHC. “I am grateful to be part of the AHC family and to have our staff and nursing leaders recognized for their hard work and commitment to excellence.”
