New England Hospice received the Gold Seal of Approval- an internationally recognized symbol of quality, from the Joint Commission on June 28, 2017.
As part of New England Hospices' commitment to excellence, we voluntarily went through a thorough evaluation by the Joint Commission which determined our company meets the rigorous performance standards in delivering quality, safe care. The Joint Commission continuously improves health care by setting the highest standards for health care quality throughout the world.
Items such as, but not limited to, plans for emergency situations, protecting against infection and understanding patient privacy rights are evaluated and monitored in receiving this accreditation.
New England hospice does not exclude people or treat them differently because of race, color, national origin, age, disability, sex or sexual orientation. We maintain the importance that hospice is about life and the quality of time we have left.
