We are happy to announce that Agape Healthcare has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s (TJC’s) national standards. TJC expert surveyors evaluated the organization in an unannounced and rigorous survey March 2021 for compliance with standards of care, including patient safety, quality of care, staff performance and leadership.
Accreditation is a voluntary process with re-accreditation every three years. Agape first earned and has maintained accreditation since 2012 and is among an elite few independent hospice and palliative care providers within Denver to hold the distinction of both State Accreditation and The Joint Commission Accreditation.
People living with serious or terminal illness deserve the very best care, support and symptom management,” says Director of Compliance, Quality and Administrative Services, Amanda Stanley. “With Joint Commission accreditation, we’re making a significant investment in quality care from the top down. This accreditation recognizes our culture of excellence, and it provides a framework for continual growth as we serve our community.
We’re grateful to the TJC surveyors, who made the process as smooth and straightforward as possible, and the Agape team working together to provide information, field visits and other requests for this survey. Most notable, the seal represents a highly skilled team absolutely dedicated to providing the best possible experience for every patient and family we serve.
