Greenfield, Wis. – By demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety, Advanced Pain Management’s Pain Center of Wisconsin-Waukesha has earned the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™. Advanced Pain Management is a group of physicians dedicated to diagnosing and treating painful conditions using the most advanced, minimally invasive treatment options available.

 

“We sought accreditation for our organization because we want to demonstrate our commitment to patient safety and quality care,” said Kristine Lobotzke, director of clinical operations at Advanced Pain Management. “Our pursuit of the Joint Commission accreditation is an important step toward achieving excellence.”

 

The Joint Commission conducted unannounced, on-site evaluations of The Pain Center’s of Wisconsin-Waukesha on Dec. 7 and 8, 2009. This voluntary accreditation award recognizes Advanced Pain Management’s dedication to complying with the Joint Commission’s state-of-the-art standards on a continuous basis.

Nearly 1,200 freestanding ambulatory care organizations maintain Joint Commission accreditation.
