The Joint Commission realizes its mission through the work its employees do every day to help health care organizations aspire to provide safer, higher quality care. They are committed to providing products and services that are relevant and to working collaboratively with their fellow employees, health care organizations and other stakeholders. Everything they do, every survey or review they conduct, every interaction with the public, and every standard we set, is done with the aim of helping their customers better serve their patients, residents and clients.
The Joint Commission employs more than 1000 people with diverse qualifications. In their central office, employees with backgrounds in health care work in their accreditation and certification operations, performance measurement/standards, and business development and external relations divisions. They also look for experienced business professionals for their marketing, publishing, education, communications, finance and administrative areas. Our information technology employees use state-of-the-art web-based technology.
