The Joint Commission conducts periodic unannounced accreditation surveys of the Stony Brook University Hospital.
The purpose of these surveys is to evaluate Stony Brook University Hospital's compliance with nationally established Joint Commission standards. Survey results are used to determine whether, and the conditions under which, accreditation should be awarded to the organization. The last survey was in June 2009 at which time the hospital received The Joint Commission Gold Seal and full accreditation for 39 months.
