Wayne Medical Center earns reaccreditation from The Joint Commission


WAYNESBORO, Tenn. — Wayne Medical Center (WMC) has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Hospital Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with performance standards.

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

“The staff and physicians at Wayne Medical Center consistently provide compassionate and quality care to our patients. We are pleased that these efforts have resulted in this valued accreditation from The Joint Commission,” said Madora Bevis, chief nursing officer at WMC.

WMC recently underwent a rigorous, unannounced onsite survey when a team of Joint Commission surveyors evaluated compliance with hospital standards related to several areas, including emergency management, environment of care, infection prevention and control, leadership, and medication management. Surveyors also conducted onsite observations and interviews.

The Joint Commission has accredited hospitals since 1951 and is the nation’s largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care. The Joint Commission evaluates and accredits more than 22,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States.

“As a heath care accreditor, The Joint Commission works with health care organizations across settings to help improve patient safety and quality of care through our expert resources and tools, innovative solutions and rigorous standards,” said Deborah Ryan, MS, RN, interim executive vice president of accreditation and certification operations with The Joint Commission. “We commend Wayne Medical Center for its commitment to advance safety and quality for all patients.”

The Joint Commission’s hospital standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. The standards are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help hospitals measure, assess and improve performance.

Wayne Medical Center offers a range of health care services, including inpatient care, 24-hour emergency care, imaging, laboratory services, endoscopy, sleep studies and a range of therapy services, including physical, speech and occupational therapy.
