Children’s National is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to all patients. An example of our dedication to quality is in our asthma care.

The Joint Commission accredits and certifies more than 15,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards. The Joint Commission produces Quality Check, a comprehensive guide to health care organizations in the United States.

One category that is measured and benchmarked for pediatric care is the care of hospitalized children with asthma. In the last year, Children’s National Medical Center’s performance in this area is above the performance of most accredited organizations nationwide. Of the 11 measures, Children’s National achieved the best possible results in 5 of the categories. Learn more about the report.
