Rome, GA Redmond Regional Medical Center has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for its management of both Carotid Stenosis and Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm. Redmond achieved these honors by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety in disease-specific care. The certification awards recognize Redmond’s dedication to continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s state-of-the-art standards.

“We are very excited about these Joint Commission Certifications,” said Kim McGuire, Redmond’s Clinical Nurse Navigator for Vascular Services. “At Redmond, we focus on providing excellent care. Our nursing staff has over 1,200 years of combined experience caring for vascular surgery patients from the operating room to their discharge home. That nursing experience combined with the leadership and experience of five Board Certified Vascular Surgeons from the Harbin Clinic, truly sets Redmond apart in providing quality care.”

Redmond Regional Medical Center underwent a rigorous on-site review with a Joint Commission expert evaluating Redmond for compliance with standards of care specific to the needs of patients and families. This review included infection prevention and control, leadership, and medication management among many other areas.

“These certifications validate Redmond’s commitment to quality in vascular surgery,” said John Quinlivan, Chief Executive Officer at Redmond Regional Medical Center. “We’ve participated in the Patient Safety Organization of the Society of Vascular Surgery since May of 2011, reporting quality data. Now to also be recognized by the Joint Commission with these certifications, truly speaks to our culture of excellence from the top down. I’m very proud of our team here at Redmond.”

This year, the Joint Commission also named Redmond Regional Medical Center a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures for Heart Attack, Heart Failure, Pneumonia and Surgical Care.
