Safety-net hospital achieves gold standard rating and a call-out in the prestigious rating agency’s magazine as a“remarkable institution”

Willowbrook, Calif. – MLK Community Hospital has once again received The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval™ for Hospital Accreditation and been called-out in the national accrediting body’s magazine as a “remarkable” example of safe and effective patient care. 

Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission is the nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care, regularly evaluating more than 22,000 hospitals and other health organizations.  Certification by the Joint Commission takes place every three years through unannounced week-long visits by experts in a wide variety of health and hospital-related fields who evaluate institutions based on more than 250 safety and quality standards.

In the rating organization’s magazine, “Committed to Quality,” MLKCH’s state-of-the-art systems, success in fighting infection, and effective management of repeated COVID surges as evidence of the hospital’s “commitment to quality, safety and innovative processes at every level.”

“With a sterling reputation for readiness, adaptability and innovation, MLKCH continues to validate its role as a lifeblood of its community and celebrate the success of its larger, profound, and deeply felt mission,” the article noted.

We are proud that our safety, quality and excellence – as well as commitment to our community – is making national headlines.
