MedStar health hospitals are accredited by the Joint Commission. This accreditation is voluntary, and the commission evaluates health care facilities at the request of the facility, states MedStar. The Joint Commission evaluates a health care facility using interviews with patients and staff and by conducting observations of the hospital's daily operations. The Commission also inspects hospital documents, reviews the facility, and assesses patient safety and the culture and teamwork at the facility when evaluating a hospital. The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities has also accredited MedStar Health's rehabilitation services.
