The Gold Seal of Approval®:
Newport’s Joint Commission Accreditation

Newport’s accreditation from The Joint Commission makes it clear to the public and within the treatment field that our programs meet the highest standards for quality healthcare.

Newport Healthcare has achieved The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval®, confirming the safety, efficacy, and excellence of our care. An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission is the recognized global leader for healthcare accreditation. Founded in 1951, it is the nation’s oldest and most respected healthcare accrediting body.

The Joint Commission certifies more than 22,000 healthcare organizations and programs in the United States including hospitals, behavioral health, home healthcare, and laboratory and nursing care center services. Informed by scientific literature and expert consensus, The Joint Commission’s standards are developed in consultation with healthcare experts and providers, measurement experts, and patients.

Assuring quality and safety in healthcare, the Gold Seal of Approval makes it clear to the public and within the treatment field that a healthcare program meets the highest standards for quality healthcare. Newport Healthcare meets The Joint Commission’s rigorous performance guidelines across all individual programs, including more than 1,300 standards, and consistently obtains high approval ratings.

Newport Healthcare voluntarily pursues accreditation by The Joint Commission, setting us apart from other treatment programs. Achieving the Gold Seal of Approval involves regular, unannounced audits of Newport’s facilities and treatment programs, by trained experts who ensure that treatment is delivered in a safe environment by qualified and competent staff. The surveyors also conduct onsite observations and interviews and utilize medical records and client interviews in order to assess treatment quality.

Joint Commission accreditation provides assurance for consumers—including clients, families, professionals, and payers—that the quality and safety of treatment have been validated by a third-party organization. Hence, The Joint Commission’s accreditation is used as a reliable indicator of quality by insurers—as a condition of payment approval, to qualify for contracts, or to achieve higher reimbursement in tiered systems.
