“Being first in the nation to receive Joint Commission certification in community-based palliative care is an honor and a significant validation of our longstanding commitment to evidence-based practice, quality, safety and positive patient outcomes," said Lenard L. Parisi, RN, MA, CPHQ, FNAHQ, vice president, Quality Management, MJHS. "MJHS was one of the first organizations to create a community-based palliative care program in the Greater New York area and so The Joint Commission’s recognition is made all the more meaningful; it signals the health care sector’s growing recognition of the important role palliative care should play in patient care and underscores the importance of delivering it with compassion, as well as with cultural sensitivity."
