Riverside University Health System – Medical Center has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Disease - Specific Care Certification Hip Fracture. The Joint Commission is a national organization that develops standards promoting quality and safety in healthcare. These standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. The Gold Seal is a symbol of prestige that reflects a health care organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.

RUHS – Medical Center underwent a rigorous, onsite review in which a Joint Commission reviewer evaluated compliance with its certification standards.
