Joint Commission also accredits health plans, integrated delivery networks, and other managed care entities. In addition, The Joint Commission provides certification of disease-specific care programs, primary stroke centers, and health care staffing services. An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission is the nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.

KidsPeace is a 126-year-old national children's crisis charity dedicated to giving hope, help, and healing to children facing crisis. Founded in Bethlehem, PA with 29 centers statewide and 50+ centers nationally, KidsPeace directly helps thousands of children a day with life-saving treatment to overcome the crises of growing up. Supported by its national spokesperson Leeza Gibbons, founder of the Leeza Gibbons Memory Foundation and Leeza's Place (http://www.leezasplace.org), and child safety and self-esteem icon RETRO BILL, KidsPeace helps millions more each year through prevention and awareness campaigns designed to help America's kids and parents avoid and overcome the kinds of crises that can strike any child -- from disasters and personal traumas to family issues and life crises. KidsPeace was named "The Outstanding Organization" of its kind in the country by the American Association of Psychiatric Services for Children and was called "a prototype of what we need for all children everywhere" by the late, nationally renowned child and family expert, Dr. Lee Salk.
