The Joint Commission has awarded its Gold Seal of Approval for Spine Surgery to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southlake for demonstrating consistent compliance with its performance standards, Southlake Style reported Sept. 10.

Three things to know:

1. The gold seal denotes a quality spine program.

2. The certification evaluates how facilities use clinical outcomes and performance measures to identify opportunities to improve care. 

3. The Joint Commission surveyors conducted an onsite review on March 2 to evaluate the hospital's compliance with care and specific spine standards.

Texas Health Southlake was commended for "using certification to reduce variation in its clinical processes and to strengthen its program structure and management framework for spine."
