BrightStar Care, our national home healthcare brand devoted to helping others through high-quality care, was recently awarded The Joint Commission 2023 Enterprise Champion for Quality Award for the eleventh consecutive year, reinforcing our commitment to the highest standards of home care.
BrightStar Care has been the only home care organization to achieve this title for more than a decade. Additionally, more than 95 percent of our corporate and independently owned and operated offices are accredited by The Joint Commission.
The Significance of The Joint Commission
The Joint Commission is the nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in healthcare, which makes a Joint Commission accreditation a known quality indicator within the industry. It is the same organization that accredits and certifies more than 22,000 healthcare organizations and programs in the United States.
Receiving the Gold Seal of Approval® from The Joint Commission means that healthcare organizations have completed a comprehensive on-site review and precisely follow the standards and requirements established by The Joint Commission. To achieve accreditation, organizations must incorporate and consistently maintain Joint Commission standards and requirements into their policies, procedures, processes, and training materials.
The Joint Commission accreditation has allowed BrightStar Care to help our clients continue to live safely in their own homes and improve the quality of their lives.
The Consistent Provider of High-Quality Care
The continued recognition, coupled with our nationwide footprint, such as over 100+ national accounts, is a testament to our reputation as a leading provider of quality home care to families and communities throughout the nation. Our franchisees gain access to our brand name and extensive experience in the healthcare industry when they start a business with us. We understand the path to success and give our franchisees comprehensive support and the blueprint to run a rewarding home care business.
“Our top priority across the entire BrightStar Care network is to deliver a higher standard of care to our clients, so they can receive treatment and care safely and independently in the comfort of their homes,” said Shelly Sun, Founder and CEO of BrightStar Care. “We are grateful that The Joint Commission continues to recognize our efforts and has once again awarded us with its prestigious Enterprise Champion for Quality Award. As we diversify our offerings across a wide payer mix and increase our customer count to reach the total addressable market eligible for home care, we remain committed to providing the full continuum of care. With this award, we will continue to collaborate with our franchisees to ensure that our clients receive industry-leading, high-quality nurse-led care.”
