Healthcare Network was awarded accreditation by The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). The three-year award verifies that a health care provider meets the most rigorous quality and safety standards of care for their patients and communities. Healthcare Network maintained accreditation from JCAHO from 1995 – 2007 when they switched accrediting agencies to the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
