North Tampa Behavioral Health Hospital is proud of our legacy of delivering the best possible care for individuals in need of mental health and substance abuse treatment services. As a leading treatment provider in Florida, we have built strong relationships and affiliations with various state and national organizations who share our dedication to excellence in behavioral healthcare.
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)
CMS is a federal agency that oversees the nation’s Medicare and Medicaid programs, as well as the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). In addition to overseeing health insurance portability standards, CMS also monitors the state’s treatment programs’ integrity by assessing their quality of care.
North Tampa’s relationship with CMS allows us to provide treatment services to Florida citizens who rely on the programs mentioned above to pay for treatment. Through this partnership, we’re removing barriers to healing, and creating greater access to effective treatment services for those who need them.
The Joint Commission
The Joint Commission is an independent, not-for-profit organization that accredits and certifies more than 20,000 healthcare organizations in the United States. Their certification signals that a hospital, center, or clinic has met or exceeded rigorous performance standards for patient care.
Having The Joint Commission Seal of Approval signifies North Tampa’s commitment to excellence in patient-centered programming. We value our patients’ safety and well-being above all else, and we are proud to have this distinguished recognition.
The Jason Foundation Inc.
The Jason Foundation Inc. (JFI) is a nonprofit organization that is committed to saving the lives of young people by promoting awareness of the risk of youth suicide. The foundation provides educational curricula and seminars for young people, teachers, and parents to enhance understanding of warning signs and symptoms, and provide guidance as to how to respond to safety concerns.
JFI works hand-in-hand with North Tampa Behavioral Health Hospital and other treatment providers to link youth who are struggling with suicidality with programs and services that can meet their needs. This partnership has created a streamlined pathway for Florida youth to access our support when they need it most.
Florida Agency for Health Care Administration
This agency is the chief health policy and planning origination for the state of Florida, and is charged with overseeing the state’s large Medicaid program. They also monitor the licensure of Florida’s 48,500 hospitals, clinics, centers, and other healthcare facilities.
Being licensed by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration indicates that North Tampa Behavioral Health Hospital has met all state standards and requirements for patient care. We will continue to work with this organization to promote high standards, and to prioritize consistent reviews of our policies and procedures so that our patients are afforded the best experience possible while in our care.
Florida Department of Children and Families
Among the many services that the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) provides in the efforts to protect some of Florida’s most vulnerable citizens, this department is responsible for overseeing our state’s healthcare facilities to ensure that each organization has met specific requirements and standards.
At North Tampa Behavioral Health Hospital, we are proud to have earned certification from the Florida Department of Children and Families. This demonstrates our commitment to offering the very finest in clinical services. With the support and guidance of this agency and others, we will continue to work towards bettering our internal practices, improving on deficiencies, and maintaining our position as a leading behavioral healthcare provider in the state of Florida.
