The Joint Commission

Posted on March 14, 2016 in Uncategorized

Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center is accredited by The Joint Commission, recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards and continued dedication to providing you with quality care.

Fort Sanders also holds the coveted Comprehensive Stroke Center certification – given to only a fraction of facilities under Joint Commission review.  Fort Sanders was just the second facility in our region to receive this honor – which recognizes those hospitals that have state-of-the-art infrastructure, staff and training to receive and treat patients with the most complex strokes.

Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center is a member of Covenant Health. Covenant Health is an integrated healthcare delivery system headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee. Its services include acute care hospitals, outpatient facilities, specialized care in areas such as cancer and rehabilitation, behavioral health organizations, physician clinics, home care and a school of nursing affiliated with Tennessee Wesleyan University. Covenant Health includes approximately 10,000 employees and about 1,500 affiliated physicians.
