CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. --
Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton and its outlying medical clinics were awarded the Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval June 17, 2014.
The seal signifies that NHCP has met the requirements to receive full accreditation for another three years. To receive this acknowledgement, the hospital underwent an unannounced, five-day survey process in March that evaluated safety and patient care.
"I’m extremely proud of our staff," said Capt. Mark Kobelja, the hospital’s commanding officer. “This certification reflects our ongoing commitment to provide quality healthcare to our service members and their families.”
The Joint Commission is an independent, not-for-profit organization, established more than 50 years ago. The organization accredits and certifies more than 20,500 health care organizations and programs across the nation.
