MinuteClinic gets Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for ambulatory care

By Sandra Levy - 11/20/2018
MinuteClinic, the retail medical clinic of CVS Health, has received its fifth consecutive accreditation by The Joint Commission — the Gold Seal of Approval for Ambulatory Health Care Accreditation, demonstrating continuous compliance with its nationally recognized standards.

MinuteClinic was the first national retail clinic provider to be accredited by the Joint Commission, receiving its initial accreditation in 2006. Since then, it has received four consecutive reaccreditations from the national healthcare evaluation and certifying agency.

The Joint Commission's gold seal of pproval denotes MinuteClinic's compliance with the organization's national standards for ambulatory healthcare quality and safety, the company said. Valid for up to a three-year period, the Joint Commission accreditation applies to MinuteClinic's 1,100 locations inside select CVS Pharmacy and Target stores in 33 states and the District of Columbia.

"MinuteClinic is incredibly proud to have again received The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval. This reaccreditation validates that we are delivering on our commitment to provide high quality clinical care and to follow rigorous safety standards at all MinuteClinic locations across the country," MinuteClinic executive director and CVS Health senior vice president Sharon Vitti said. "With patient satisfaction ratings of 95% and clinical collaborations with more than 70 leading health systems throughout the country, we continue to demonstrate a consistent record of high quality, coordinated care."
