The Joint Commission

The The Joint Commission conducts unannounced surveys of Rio Grande Regional Hospital to evaluate the facility’s compliance with nationally-established standards. Those survey results will be used to determine whether, and the conditions under which, accreditation should be awarded to the hospital.

The mission of The Joint Commission is to continuously improve the safety and quality of health care provided to the public through the provision of health care accreditation and related services that support performance improvement in health care organizations.

Because all surveys are unannounced, public information interviews are conducted only if someone contacts the surveyor(s) during an on-site survey to request an interview. If during the course of an unannounced survey you would like to request an interview, please call 1-800-994-6610 or e-mail
