Joint Commission Praises North Shore-LIJ Hospitals

Jeremy Boal, MD

Three out of eight of the Joint Commission’s “Top Hospitals” in New York State are within the North Shore-LIJ Health System. Not bad for the first year that The Joint Commission has created such a designation. And quite a few of our other health system hospitals came very close to making the list.

For those who are curious about how a facility becomes a Joint Commission Top Hospital, it requires excelling in providing all the evidence-based elements of care to patients with certain conditions such as heart attack, heart failure and pneumonia. Kudos to North Shore University, Plainview and Southside hospitals. You folks are amazing.
