GAHHS Laboratory Accreditation through The Joint Commission

Gibson Area Hospital Laboratory is fully accredited by the Joint Commission.



The Joint Commission


The Joint Commission is an independent, not-for-profit organization established more than 50 years ago to set the standards by which health care quality is measured in America and around the world. It is governed by a board that includes physicians, nurses, and consumers. To maintain and earn accreditation, organizations must have an extensive on-site review by the Joint Commission team to evaluate the organization’s performance in areas that effect patient care.

Gibson Area Hospital Laboratory has surveys every two years with the last being in November of 2018. These surveys are unannounced.

The public may contact the Joint Commission’s Office of Quality Monitoring to report any concerns or register complaints dealing with laboratory quality or patient safety by calling 1-800-994-6610 or emailing at
