2021 Joint Commission Enterprise Champion Award reinforces BrightStar Care's commitment to a higher standard of clinical quality
BrightStar Care of Chico is very proud to be a part of an organization awarded The Joint Commission's 2021 Enterprise Champion for Quality Award nine years in a row.
BrightStar Care, a national private duty home care and medical staffing franchise with over 340 locally owned and operated locations nationwide, was awarded The Joint Commission's 2021 Enterprise Champion for Quality Award, reinforcing the brand's devotion to the highest standards of quality and safety in in-home care.
BrightStar Care is the only organization to achieve the title nine years in a row, with more than 95 percent of its franchisees accredited by The Joint Commission, the nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care. Additionally, BrightStar Care is one of only two franchisors to receive this title since the award's inception in 2013.
Receiving the Gold Seal of Approval® from The Joint Commission means that health care organizations have completed a comprehensive on-site review and follow the policies and procedures established by their organization. To achieve accreditation, organizations must incorporate Joint Commission standards and requirements into their policies, procedures and training materials, as well as conduct consistent mock evaluations. Joint Commission accreditation helps organizations improve safety procedures, which became even more important amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since its inception, it has been BrightStar Care's objective to deliver the gold standard of high-quality in-home care for our patients to stay comfortable and safe in their homes. We are thrilled that The Joint Commission recognizes our efforts by awarding us with its Enterprise Champion for Quality Award for the ninth time in a row," said Shelly Sun, founder and CEO of BrightStar Care. "This past year illustrated the growing importance of having access to a quality home care for home-bound patients."
Joint Commission accreditation is a known quality indicator within the industry. It is the same organization that accredits and certifies more than 22,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. Joint Commission accreditation has allowed BrightStar Care to help its clients continue living safely in their homes and help prevent hospital re-admission."
