Monroe County Medical Center is accredited by The Joint Commission.
That means we voluntarily submit to evaluations of our compliance

practices continuous quality monitoring to provide you with quality health care.
The Joint Commission accreditation is recognized internationally as a symbol of quality

To earn and maintain the Joint Commissionís Gold Seal of Approval, an organization undergoes an unannounced onsite survey
by a Joint Commission survey team at least every (3) years; the laboratory is surveyed every (2) years.

Compliance Officer at (270) 487-9231 ext. 1190. You can voice your concerns or make requests without fear of coercion, discrimination,
reprisal, or unreasonable interruption of care for having done so.
