Awards & Recognitions – November 2021

Joint Commission Certification

Barrow Neurological Institute, in partnership with St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, has again received The Joint Commission’s Disease-Specific Care Certification for both Traumatic Brain Injury and Spinal Cord Injury. This distinction recognizes our commitment to excellence and providing outstanding quality care using the best evidence-based practice. Barrow/St. Joseph’s remains the only acute care hospital in the United States to achieve both certifications.
