BUFFALO, NEW YORK; October 30, 2007-Erie County Medical Center (ECMC) Corporation has earned the Joint Commission's Gold Seal of ApprovalTM-evidence of accreditation with all standards-by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission's national standards for health care quality and safety.
The Joint Commission accreditation is recognized worldwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization's commitment to meeting certain performance standards. To earn and maintain The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of ApprovalTM, an organization must undergo an on-site survey by a Joint Commission survey team at least every three years. ECMC voluntarily sought The Joint Commission accreditation. As a result, The Joint Commission conducted an unannounced, on-site evaluation of all ECMC hospital activity in August of 2007. The accreditation is effective as of August 25, 2007, and the certificate and cycle are customarily valid for up to 39 months. The accreditation award recognizes ECMC's dedication to complying with the Joint Commission's current standards on a continuous basis and confirms that ECMC consistently provides safe, high-quality care, treatment, and services.
"The Joint Commission accreditation is recognition of ECMC's excellence in patient safety and quality care and serves to demonstrate our commitment to excellence to the entire Western New York community," stated Michael A. Young, M.H.A., F.A.C.H.E., President and Chief Executive Officer of ECMC Corporation.
"The Joint Commission accreditation is proof of our organization-wide determination to provide high quality care on an ongoing basis," said Karen M. Maricle, R.N., M.S., C.N.A.A., Senior Vice President of Operations for ECMC Corporation.
"Above all, the national standards are intended to stimulate continuous, systematic and organization-wide improvement in an organization's performance and the outcomes of care," says Darlene Christiansen, Executive Director, Hospital Accreditation Program, Joint Commission. "The community should be proud that ECMC is focusing on the most challenging goal-to continuously raise quality and safety to higher levels."
Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission seeks to continuously improve the safety and quality of care provided to the public through the provision of health care accreditation and related services that support performance improvement in health care organizations. The Joint Commission evaluates and accredits nearly 15,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States, including more than 8,000 hospitals. An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission is the nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.

The ECMC Corporation includes an advanced academic medical center (ECMC) with 550 inpatient beds and 136 skilled-nursing-home beds, on- and off-campus health centers, over 40 outpatient specialty care clinics and the Erie County Home, a skilled nursing facility.
