The Salem Health Spine Center is an official Spine Center of Excellence (COE), certified by the Joint Commission.
The Joint Commission makes sure that a hospital’s program:
- Follows established national standards
- Makes decisions based on medical evidence
- Constantly measures and improves performance
The ultimate point of the standards is to make sure you get the right treatment at the right time, every time.
What is especially rewarding about earning Center of Excellence (COE) recognition is that it makes Salem Health Spine Center the model that other spine centers all over the country will follow when they create their own programs.
It’s an honor for us to serve as an example of what’s possible when doctors, surgeons, hospitals and patients all work together with a common goal.
