SPECIALTY RX AWARDED ACCREDITATION FROM THE JOINT COMMISSION

Specialty RX has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety in home care. The accreditation award recognizes Specialty RX’s dedication to continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s state-of-the art standards.

Specialty RX underwent a rigorous unannounced on-site survey where a team of Joint Commission expert surveyors evaluated Specialty RX for compliance with standards of care specific to the medication needs of patients.

“With Joint Commission accreditation, we are making a significant investment in quality on a day-to-day basis from the top down. Joint Commission accreditation provides us a framework to take our company to the next level and helps create a culture of excellence,” says Joe Kubulak, Specialty RX VP of Operations & RPh in Charge. “Achieving Joint Commission accreditation is a major step toward maintaining excellence and continually improving the care we provide.”
