Riverview Receives Gold Seal Awarded
An East Alabama Medical Center has earned a special accreditation from the Joint Commission. Riverview Regional Medical Center in Gadsden learned today that it has been awarded the Commission's Gold Seal of Approval. The award demonstrates that the 281-bed hospital is in continuous compliance with Joint Commission standards and is a symbol of the quality of Riverview's commitment to providing safe and effective patient care. The Gold Seal was awarded after the medical center underwent a rigorous, unannounced site survey back in June. Joint Commission experts evaluated the hospital's standards in several areas including emergency management, infection prevention and control and numerous other patient care services.
