Nantucket Cottage Hospital has demonstrated continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s performance standards, and in 2017 earned the organization’s Gold Seal of Approval for Hospital Accreditation, a symbol of quality that reflects the hospital’s commitment to providing safe and effective patient care.
