The accreditation award recognizes Statcare’s dedication to continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s state-of-the-
"We recognize Joint Commission accreditation as the Gold Seal for providing safe, high quality patient care,” said Dr. Priti Jain, who operates Statcare at 412 S. Broadway in Hicksville with her husband, Dr. Sandeep Jain. “The Joint Commission’s standards emphasize patient safety and quality of patient care. All hospitals including their emergency rooms are required to be certified by The Joint Commission. However, there is no such requirement for Urgent Care Centers. Statcare in Hicksville is the only Urgent Care facility on all of long island to have successfully obtained this certification. With so many choices available for Urgent Care on Long Island, the Joint Commission Gold Seal provides our customer with an independent and objective assessment of clinical excellence at Statcare. It also attests to the fact that our organization is committed to providing the highest quality emergency care services.”
The Joint Commission’s ambulatory care standards address important functions relating to the care of patients and the management of an ambulatory care organization. The standards are developed in consultation with health care experts, providers, measurement experts, and patients.
As part of the accreditation process, Statcare underwent a rigorous unannounced on-site survey by a team of Joint Commission expert surveyors. The surveyors evaluated the Statcare Urgent Care for compliance with standards of care specific to the needs of patients, including infection prevention and control, leadership, and medication management.
“Organizations that strive for accreditation in ambulatory care from The Joint Commission are demonstrating the highest commitment to quality and safety to their patients, staff and their community,” says Michael Kulczycki, executive director, Ambulatory Care Accreditation Program, The Joint Commission. “I commend Statcare for successfully achieving this pinnacle and for its dedication to continually improving patient care.”
Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission seeks to continuously improve health care for the public, in collaboration with other stakeholders, by evaluating health care organizations and inspiring them to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value. An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission is the nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.
Statcare’s Hicksville location has been serving the Long Island area since 2008, and is also certified by the National Association for Ambulatory Care. NAFAC is an organization dedicated to the development and promotion of urgent and convenience care and ambulatory care medicine in the United States and North America.
In addition to its recent Joint Commission accreditation at its Hicksville location, Statcare is also celebrating the one year anniversary of its second location at 37-15 23rd Avenue in Astoria, N.Y. The Statcare team will be pursuing Joint Commission accreditation for the Astoria location as well.
