Bridgemoor Transitional Care in Webster earns accreditation and certification
AUSTIN, Texas – Bridgemoor Transitional Care in Webster is the first skilled nursing facility in Webster to earn the Gold Seal of Approval® from the country’s largest health care accrediting organization. It’s the fourth of Bridgemoor’s skilled nursing facilities in Texas to earn this distinction.
The Webster location was recognized by The Joint Commission for Nursing Care Center Accreditation and Post-Acute Care Certification by demonstrating continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s performance standards.
"We’re incredibly proud to be the first skilled nursing facility in Webster to have earned the Gold Seal of Approval for Nursing Care Center Accreditation and Post-Acute Care Certification,” Mark Fritz, president of Bridgemoor Transitional Care, said. “With this honor, we are proud to also announce that all of our facilities are now Joint Commission accredited and certified.”
To earn accreditation and certification from The Joint Commission, Bridgemoor Transitional Care in Webster underwent a rigorous on-site review in July. Expert surveyors evaluated compliance with nursing care center standards related to several areas, including assistance with activities of daily living, coordination of care, as well as staff education and training. Surveyors also conducted on-site observations and interviews with the center’s leaders and staff.
The Joint Commission, a nonprofit that is the nation’s oldest and largest accrediting body in health care, awards accreditation for three years and certification for two years.
“By receiving accreditation and certification from The Joint Commission, Bridgemoor Transitional Care in Webster has proved its commitment to provide high quality post-acute care,” Gina Zimmermann, executive director of the Nursing Care Center Accreditation Program for The Joint Commission, said. “We commend Bridgemoor for holding such high standards and making patient safety and quality of care important priorities.”
Bridgemoor’s innovative model of care serves as a bridge between the hospital and home, helping to reduce the likelihood of a patient returning to the hospital. This practice can reduce total care costs as the patient recovers under the care of a physician-led team.
“We are grateful to the physicians, nurses and staff who provide the highest quality care to our patients and make this recognition possible,” Fritz said.
The health care provider’s Round Rock and San Antonio locations earned the Gold Seal of Approval®—a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care—in 2018. Bridgemoor’s Fort Worth location earned the honor in July 2019. With the addition of Webster, all of Bridgemoor’s facilities have received Joint Commission accreditation and certification.
Bridgemoor Transitional Care in Webster is located at 16130 Galveston.
