Accreditation


Joint Commission Seal
Tuerk House is proudly accredited by the Joint Commission, the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care. The Joint Commission’s behavioral health care standards address important functions relating to the care of individuals served and the management of behavioral health care organizations. The standards are developed in consultation with behavioral health care experts, providers, measurement experts, individuals served and their families. Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission seeks to continuously improve health care for the public, in collaboration with other stakeholders, by evaluating health care organizations and inspiring them to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value.

Tuerk House is committed to working with clients, their families, and the community to resolve any concerns about care, treatment, or services provided in any of our programs. If after our attempts to resolve any concern that you may have, you still believe that you have pertinent and valid information about such matters, you may contact the Joint Commission field representatives in writing. Information presented to the Joint Commission will be carefully evaluated for relevance to the accreditation process. Such correspondence should be addressed to:
