THIRA Health awarded Behavioral Health Care and Human Services Accreditation from The Joint Commission 
 
Bellevue, WA, 05/14/2021 – THIRA Health has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Behavioral Health and Human Services Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care. 

THIRA Health underwent a rigorous  review the week of February 15, 2021. During the review, The Joint Commission evaluated compliance with Behavioral Health Care and Human Services standards spanning several areas relating to THIRA’s partial hospitalization programs (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP), including Care, Treatment and Services; Infection Control; Emergency Management; Human Resources; and Leadership. 
 
The Joint Commission’s standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts, and patients. They are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help health care organizations measure, assess and improve performance. The surveyors also conducted onsite observations and interviews. 
 
“As a private accreditor, The Joint Commission surveys health care organizations to protect the public by identifying deficiencies in care and working with those organizations to correct them as quickly and sustainably as possible,” says Mark Pelletier, RN, MS, chief operating officer, Accreditation and Certification Operations, and chief nursing executive, The Joint Commission. “We commend THIRA Health for its continuous quality improvement efforts in patient safety and quality of care.”
 
“We’re incredibly pleased and proud to have achieved this accreditation from the Joint Commission,” said Dr. Mehri Moore, Chief Medical Officer and founder of THIRA Health. “This is the culmination of years of dedicated preparation on our part. I’m grateful to our team for their flawless preparation and helpfulness toward the Joint Commission reviewers.”

THIRA Health is Pleased to Announce a New Clinical Director
Sarah Skoterro brings extensive experience to this growing mental health facility focused on the well-being of women and girls
 
Bellevue, WA — 01/11/2021 — THIRA Health, LLC, located in downtown Bellevue, today announced that Sarah Skoterro will be joining the organization as Clinical Director. Ms. Skoterro has eighteen years of clinical experience with a broad range of institutions. Most recently she served as the Director of Clinical Outreach for Shadow Mountain Recovery Centers; prior to that, Ms. Skoterro was the Director of Outpatient Programs at Haven Behavioral Health Hospital and the Director of Addiction Services at Sage Neuroscience Center, both located in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

“We’re thrilled to have someone with Sarah’s impressive credentials and experience join us as Clinical Director,” said Dr. Mehri Moore, Chief Medical Officer and founder of THIRA Health. “She not only has a superb clinical background, but also experience in fiscal, operational, and project management. Her passionate commitment to suicide prevention is something we take very seriously at THIRA. It is one of the primary drivers at the heart of what we do.”
Dr. Kathryn Korslund, the previous Clinical Director at THIRA Heath, is assuming the role of Chief Clinical Officer for the organization. “Sarah’s addition to the team is a huge asset,” said Dr. Korslund, a nationally renowned authority on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), the primary therapeutic tool used at THIRA Health. “Having her assume the role of Clinical Director allows me to focus on more strategic aspects of the organization, knowing that our patients and clinical team are in her capable hands.”

The change is effective January 11, 2021.

“Sarah’s addition to our team is a win for everyone,” said Dr. Moore. “Our excellent patient care will remain uninterrupted and will expand in 2021, and Dr. Korslund will now have the time to turn her considerable talents toward the oversight of all of our treatment programs, expanding DBT training for all clinical staff, and taking THIRA to the next level.”
