Quality matters. You're particular about the things you buy. You know what to look for, compare prices, factor in benefits and advantages. But how do you know you're getting the best from Yale New Haven Health? 

Quality, safety, compassion, respect and integrity lead the way for patient-centered care at Yale New Haven Health. We hold our care up to high standards set by leaders as well as those determined by independent, nationally recognized accreditation programs such as the Joint Commission.

Through accreditation, we voluntarily participate in an evaluation conducted by trained external peer reviewers who evaluate our compliance and compare it with pre-established performance standards. The accreditation process opens our doors to transparent review and provides a professional, proactive assessment of our facilities, processes and patient care.

In addition to accreditation from the Joint Commission, our hospitals are accredited by various medical and clinical organizations. Collectively, we also hold membership in a number of national and regional professional associations.
