Licensing & Accreditation
McDowell Center for Children is dedicated to providing the highest level of quality care to our patients. The Joint Commission’s gold seal of approval on our website shows that we have demonstrated compliance to the most stringent standards of performance, and we take pride in our accreditation.
The Joint Commission standards deal with organization quality, safety-of-care issues and the safety of the environment in which care is provided. If you have concerns about your care, we would like to hear from you. You may contact us here.
If you do not feel that your concerns have been addressed adequately, you may contact The Joint Commission online at www.jointcommission.org and use the “Report a Patient Safety Event” link in the “Action Center” of the homepage of their site, by mail at: Division of Accreditation Operations, Office of Quality Monitoring, The Joint Commission, One Renaissance Boulevard, Oakbrook Terrace, IL 60181, or by fax at: 630-792-5636.
