Joint Commission Releases Local Hospital Rating.

The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations awarded Alaska Regional Hospital a score of 98 of 100 points and accreditation without Type 1 recommendations (areas with deficiencies and issues requiring resolution within a specified time-frame). JCAHO is a not-for-profit, independent organization that evaluates patient care and safety, and accredits nearly 19,000 health-care organizations and programs in the country.

Survey results for Alaska Regional and other local hospitals can be found on JCAHO's Web site at

"Nationwide, only 4 percent of hospitals surveyed this past year scored 98 or better," said Ed Lamb, Alaska Regional's president and CEO.
