Hospital Accreditation: Joint Commission
WakeMed is proud to be Joint Commission accredited healthcare provider. The Joint Commission is a healthcare accrediting agency with strict rules and regulations participating organizations must follow to ensure they are providing the best healthcare in safe facilities following best practices.
Joint Commission standards dictate security requirements, size of doorways, surgical process and procedures, physician documentation and much, much more. Comprehensive surveys are conducted every three years.
Raleigh Campus, Cary Hospital, North Healthplex, Apex Healthplex, Brier Creek Healthplex, Garner Healthplex and all WakeMed outpatient facilities are all Joint Commission accredited.
