Federal Occupational Health Accredidation Golden Opportunity.



FOH has accomplished one of the most ambitious goals in its history. On Friday, November 6, 2015, we gained System Accreditation under the Ambulatory Care Standards through The Joint Commission (TJC). We are not only the first federal agency to achieve accreditation under the new TJC Occupational Health Standards, but we will have the opportunity to participate in the development of those standards.

TJC accreditation is all about improving the quality and safety of health care, an enterprise that is in direct alignment with the FOH mission and vision. This is our “golden opportunity” to set the standard for other occupational health clinics to follow.

This is FOH’s Golden Opportunity: Going Beyond Expectation
It will take our “FOH village” to achieve Joint Commission accreditation. Please become a contributing member of the FOH GO Team. Together we are going beyond expectation!
