The Joint Commission deploys an unannounced team of experts to evaluate a facility for compliance with standards of care specific to patient needs, including infection prevention and control, leadership and medication management. "The Joint Commission's accreditation award of Methodist McKinney Hospital is a tribute to the dedication of the staff and physicians who provide excellent care," said Joe Minissale, president of Methodist McKinney Hospital. "The accreditation demonstrates to our community the entire team's commitment to providing the highest quality healthcare services."

Accreditation with The Joint Commission is a voluntary process which offers healthcare leaders an independent evaluation of their facility. The surveyor's evaluations provide a benchmark for a healthcare standard and the feedback guides continuous improvements for treatment and safety. "The Joint Commission survey and feedback is great," Minissale said. "Knowing what areas we can improve upon will help us ensure patients in and around McKinney continue to receive the best care possible at Methodist McKinney Hospital."
