Gold Seal of Approval


Hillside Rehabilitation Hospital has received the The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Hospital Accreditation reflecting the hospital’s commitment to providing safe and effective patient care and recognizing Hillside’s dedication to continuous compliance with the Joint Commission’s standards.

Hillside underwent an unannounced on-site survey in late March during which Joint Commission surveyors evaluated compliance with hospital standards related to several areas, including environment of care, infection prevention and control, quality, patient safety, nursing and medication management, and conducted on-site observations and interviews.

National Heatstroke Awareness Day


In observance of National Heatstroke Awareness Day, the National Safety Council (NSC) called on parents and caregivers to look before they lock, and on all states to implement laws to address children being left in cars.

Twenty-nine children have perished this year after being left or trapped in hot cars, and 30 states lack legislation to combat the issue, according to the NSC State of Safety report. The report deemed just two states “On Track” when it comes to child passenger safety, in part because so few have any laws to tackle vehicular heatstroke deaths.

A pending U.S. House bill would require vehicles to have backseat devices to notify drivers when a child is still in the car. A similar bill has been introduced in the U.S. Senate.

UPMC Home Healthcare


UPMC Community Provider Services has purchased Jefferson Hospital’s share of a jointly-owned home health agency formerly known as UPMC Jefferson Regional Home Health. The agency’s new name is UPMC Home Healthcare.

Home Health services will continue to see patients throughout western Pennsylvania, covering 22 counties and serving roughly 40,000 individuals each year who have comprehensive nursing and rehabilitation needs.
