BEHAVIORAL HEALTH HOME CERTIFICATION FROM THE JOINT COMMISSION
Rancho Milagro Recovery is proud to announce it has earned its accreditation for Behavioral Health Home Certification from the Joint Commission. The prestigious recognition is the result of a rigorous evaluation by the Joint Commission, which has determined and confirmed the multi-bed residential drug and alcohol abuse recovery facility’s unwavering commitment to patient care.
The Joint Commission is responsible to identify health care organizations that have made patient safety an ongoing, top priority. Although healthcare organizations are not required to have JC accreditation, the honor of holding it allows the healthcare industry – and patients – to easily identify organizations that are successfully integrating and coordinating person-centered health care in order to improve the quality of life for individuals with mental illness or other behavioral health conditions. Rancho Milagro sought out Joint Commission accreditation as part of its commitment to deliver the highest standard of care for recovery patients.
“Rancho Milagro Recovery has demonstrated its ability to provide services that address the physical and behavioral health needs of the whole person, which can improve overall satisfaction with the care experience,” said Julia Finken, RN, BSN, MBA, CSSBB, CPHQ, executive director, Behavioral Health Care
