Safe Health Design Services
Improve Safety and Accelerate JCI Accreditation in New Construction
When you are planning new construction, two major safety questions arise: Will the new building meet leading practices in safety and quality? Will my staff be ready for JCI accreditation as quickly as possible after occupancy?
The answer to both questions can be a resounding “Yes!” with help from Joint Commission International (JCI). JCI Safe Health Design Services deliver a unified solution toward building a patient-safe facility and earning JCI’s Gold Seal of Approval®.
Begin JCI accreditation preparation early – at the design stage – so your team can make upfront safety and quality decisions to avoid risks, expensive errors, and accreditation delays while setting a clear path toward JCI accreditation. Our Safe Health Design approach is adaptable to large or small campuses and is directed by a team of clinical, infection control, and facility safety experts from JCI.
