Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations http://www.jcaho.org/mm_publc.htm
JCAHO accredits almost 18,000 healthcare organizations and programs. The page of the site most useful to the majority of users is Quality Check which is the searchable Directory of Accredited Organizations. Information included from a search is address, phone, accreditation rating and if available, a full performance report. There is also an annotated list links to health care web sites.
