If your quality of life has been impacted by a spine condition, you might be searching for a solution to heal your pain and get back to living your best life. But when it comes to your spine, considering surgery is a thoughtful decision because you want proven experts to deliver your care. So, where do you start?

Well, one thing to consider is selecting a neurosurgeon and care team that’s earned the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for spine surgery. The Joint Commission is a respected non-profit that accredits and certifies healthcare organizations and programs in the United States.

AdventHealth Daytona Beach recently earned this designation as an important stamp of confidence in the organization’s commitment to providing safe and consistent high-quality patient care to our community.

What a Gold Seal of Approval® for Spine Surgery Means

Acquiring this designation is a national quality milestone. It assures that the hospital you choose has gone through rigorous review and examination for its spine care and has produced documented positive outcomes with the following important spine care metrics for three spine procedures, specifically (discectomy, laminectomy and spinal fusion):

  • Complying with national standards
  • Applying evidence-based clinical practice guidelines
  • Having an effective performance measurement and improvement process

This means that an organization’s spine care is truly exceptional, and that’s the quality of specialized service you can expect for your spine care, too. When you see the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval®, you know this symbol reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and consistent high-quality patient care.

Access to World-Class Specialists

While the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® is a facility designation, it also reflects the level of care provided by a multi-disciplinary team of healthcare professionals.

Seeking treatment from an accredited program means you’ll have access to world-class doctors, nurses and other professionals across multiple specialties — all working together to bring you the most comprehensive and specialized spine care possible.

An Exceptional Patient Experience

From the start of your healthcare journey through treatment and into recovery, you can count on our experts to be at your side every step of the way — whether that means helping you and your family better understand your condition, managing your symptoms and medications or supporting your spiritual health by praying with you.

This includes helping you coordinate your appointments, surgery and even rehabilitation. Our care navigator will guide you through your experience with us and help you understand your options, overcome barriers and make informed decisions about your treatment.

High-Quality Spine Care and More

In addition to earning this designation for spine surgery by the Joint Commission, AdventHealth Daytona Beach has also earned the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for total hip, knee and shoulder replacement surgeries.

Earning these certifications shows that AdventHealth Daytona Beach is committed to providing a higher standard of service across multiple specialties.
