Hospital Accreditation

What's the Joint Commission and why does it matter?

The Joint Commission has been accrediting hospitals for more than 50 years. Its accreditation is a nationwide seal of approval indicating that a hospital meets high-performance standards. The Joint Commission accreditation helps hospitals improve their performance, raise the level of patient care and demonstrate accountability in the rapidly changing health care marketplace.

Rappahannock General Hospital is fully accredited by The Joint Commission.

We encourage any patient or employee who has concerns about patient care in our hospital to contact us at 804-435-8512.
