Joint Commission

Montgomery Hospice is proud to be accredited by The Joint Commission. 

"The Joint Commission is the nation's predominant standards-setting and accrediting body in health care. Since 1951, The Joint Commission has maintained state-of-the-art standards that focus on improving the quality and safety of care provided by health care organizations.

The Joint Commission's comprehensive accreditation process evaluates an organization's compliance with these standards and other accreditation requirements. Joint Commission accreditation is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization's commitment to meeting certain performance standards. To earn and maintain The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval™, an organization must undergo an on-site survey by a Joint Commission survey team at least every three years."

One function of The Joint Commission is to help address concerns that an individual may have. Montgomery Hospice strongly encourages anyone with a concern to contact us at 301-921-4400. However, if the Senior Leadership of Montgomery Hospice can not resolve your concern, The Joint Commission can be reached by calling 800-994-6610 or by sending an email to More Joint Commission information can be found at
