Health-care accrediting agency The Joint Commission recently recognized Twin Cities Community Hospital as a “Top Performer” in heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care.

It was the only hospital in San Luis Obispo County to receive the recognition, according to a Twin Cities news release.

The Joint Commission gives the Top Performer designation to hospitals that are leading the way nationally in accountability performance and in using evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for certain conditions, according to the release.

The Joint Commission also releases an annual report on quality and safety with information on each of the commission’s 1,099 accredited hospitals.
