The Joint Commission (TJC) recently notified Mendocino Coast District Hospital CEO Wayne Allen that the hospital and home health program have officially received a three-year accreditation — the maximum allowable.

This accreditation renewal allows the hospital to proudly display the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™.

Achieving TJC accreditation for MCDH is a major step toward maintaining excellence and continually improving the care we provide.” (more…)
