THMED, LLC d/b/a Medestar announced that it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Health Care Staffing Services Certification. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing qualified and competent health care professionals.
Medestar underwent a rigorous on-site review in April 2015. Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with national standards that assess how health care staffing firms determine the qualifications and competency of staff, placement of staff, and how they monitor performance. All certified health care staffing organizations are required to collect data on their own performance.
Health care staffing firms place temporary staff in organizations that direct or provide patient care. Established in October 2004, Health Care Staffing Services Certification, awarded for a two-year period, offers an independent and comprehensive evaluation of a staffing firm’s abilities to provide competent staffing services.
“Medestar is pleased to receive certification from The Joint Commission, the premier quality improvement and accrediting body in the nation,” added (John Martin, CEO, Medestar). “Health Care Staffing Certification demonstrates commitment and accountability to our clients and the health care professionals we employ. Certification establishes, defines and measures delivery on key functional areas and performance measures across the entire industry. We challenge ourselves to not only grow but to also improve the way we execute our business each day.”
