The Joint Commission

Accreditation from The Joint Commission after an on-site review in February 2008 found that we had demonstrated compliance with the Joint Commissions' national standards for health care networks.

Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire was required to meet standards addressing the rights and responsibilities of persons enrolled in the network; organization ethics; providing a continuum of care; educating and communicating with enrollees; leadership; human resources; management of information; and improving network performance.

The sites where care is delivered, such as hospitals, long term care, assisted living and outpatient facilities, must also demonstrate that they are in compliance with standards set by The Joint Commission or another recognized accrediting organization.
