Joint Commission Logo
The University Health Center is fully accredited by The Joint Commission, the nation’s most prestigious accrediting board. The Joint Commission is a regulatory agency that sets standards on how health centers should operate, and inspects the facility regularly to ensure requirements are being met. Patient care and safety issues are very important to the University Health Center and are reviewed by the Joint Commission. If you have any concerns about safety or quality of care issues you are encouraged to contact the University Health Center administration at 706-542-8715. If the issues are not resolved you can contact the Joint Commission by phone at 1-800-994-6610 or by e-mail at complaints@jointcommission.org.
