| May 10, 2022 7:00 AM

Turning Winds residential treatment center in Troy has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Behavioral Healthcare and Human Services Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.

Owen Baisden, CEO of Turning Winds, stated, “It was a great experience to go through the accreditation with The Joint Commission, and we could not be more pleased with the outcome and the process in working with their team.”

Turning Winds underwent a rigorous, onsite review in February 2022. During the visit, a team of Joint Commission reviewers evaluated compliance with Behavioral Healthcare and Human Services standards spanning several areas of expertise.

The Joint Commission’s standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. They are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help health care organizations measure, assess and improve performance. The surveyors also conducted onsite observations and interviews.

“As a private accreditor, The Joint Commission surveys health care organizations to protect the public by identifying deficiencies in care and working with those organizations to correct them as quickly and sustainably as possible,” says Mark Pelletier, RN, MS, chief operating officer, Accreditation and Certification Operations, and chief nursing executive, The Joint Commission. “We commend Turning Winds for its continuous quality improvement efforts in patient safety and quality of care.”

John Baisden Jr., founder at Turning Winds stated, “Just as JCAHO is the gold standard for accreditation, Turning Winds is the gold standard for treatment, recovery, and care for the patients that they serve.”
