Dolan Family Health Center receives first Joint Commission accreditation

The Dolan Family Health Center has successfully completed its first Joint Commission accreditation survey and is the first Northwell Health ambulatory site to do so.

The Joint Commission is a not-for-profit group and the premier health care quality improvement and accrediting body in the country. The Dolan Family Health Center’s three day, on-site survey concluded with surveyors complimenting the high level of quality care at the Dolan Family Health Center.

 “This is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the Dolan Family Health Center staff and the support the center receives from Huntington Hospital,” said Joseph Volavka, MBA, senior administrative director of the Dolan Family Health Center.

The Dolan Family Health Center provides medical services for people of all ages and is a National Committee for Quality Assurance Level III Patient Centered Medical Home, the highest award given for a primary care practice.
