Joint Commission’s Gold Seal

Jefferson Radiology is the recipient of the Joint Commission’s (formerly JCAHO) Gold Seal, a nationally recognized symbol of quality that reflects our commitment to providing safe, efficient, and high-quality health care. Each of our

locations in Avon, Bloomfield, Enfield, Farmington, Glastonbury, Granby, Hartford, West Hartford and Wethersfield meets these rigid standards. Jefferson Radiology is one of the few private radiology practices in the state to receive Joint Commission accreditation, and the first in the greater Hartford area.

Additionally, we have secured the following accreditations:

  • American College of Radiology (ACR)
  • Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Labs (ICAVL)

.    

Commitment to Quality Patient Care and Safety

Jefferson Radiology is committed to providing the highest quality patient care, and ensuring that it is delivered in a safe environment. To this end, we have implemented a number of multidisciplinary committees and task forces comprised of staff and physicians to monitor activities within the organization, including:

  • Quality Committee
  • Safety Committee
  • Standard Operating Procedures Committee

The goals of these committees are to routinely evaluate processes and practices, and identify areas for improvement through education, evaluating workflow, and/or making needed staffing adjustments.
