Joint Commission Certified
In 2001 The Stern Center became the first Office Based Surgical Practice in the Pacific Northwest to receive accreditation from The Joint Commission, a not-for-profit organization focused on ensuring that all people always experience the safest, highest quality, best-value health care across all settings.
Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects a medical organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards. Only 500 medical practices in the nation are accredited and certified by The Joint Commission.
We’re proud to be among the nation’s best, accredited and certified by The Joint Commission.
