The Joint Commission Survey
The Joint Commission conducts periodic accreditation surveys at The Family Health Centers of Georgia, Inc. The purpose of the survey is to evaluate the organization's compliance with nationally established Joint Commission Standards. The survey results are used to determine whether, and the conditions under which, accreditation should be awarded to the organization. Joint Commission standards deal with quality of care, patient safety and the safety of the environment in which care is provided. If you feel you have any concerns about patient care or safety, please notify our Corporate Compliance Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404.756.8735. If you feel your concerns have not been addressed by FHCGA management, you may contact The Joint Commission directly.
