DANSVILLE — UR Medicine | Noyes Health again has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of ApprovalŪ for Hospital Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards.

The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.

Noyes Health underwent a rigorous, unannounced onsite review in September 2019.

The surveyors also conducted onsite observations and interviews.

“As a private accreditor, The Joint Commission surveys health care organizations to protect the public by identifying deficiencies in care and working with those organizations to correct them as quickly and sustainably as possible,” says Mark Pelletier, RN, MS, chief operating officer, Accreditation and Certification Operations, and chief nursing executive, The Joint Commission. “We commend UR Medicine | Noyes Health for its continuous quality improvement efforts in patient safety and quality of care.”
