CMHIP is accredited by the Joint Commission (formerly known as the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations). Accreditation means the Joint Commission recognizes us as a hospital with an organization-wide commitment to providing ongoing quality care.


Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission is dedicated to continuously improving the safety and quality of the nation's health care through voluntary accreditation.  The Joint Commission's onsite survey of CMHIP took place in April 2006.


Joint Commission accreditation means we comply with the highest national standards for safety and quality of care.  During our survey the Joint Commission conducted a thorough onsite review of the quality and safety of care provided. Accreditation is evidence of our commitment to continuous improvement and delivering safe, high quality care by meeting rigorous national standards—continuously.


If you have concerns regarding the safety or quality of care provided at the Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo, you may report these concerns to hospital management at 719-546-4747.


If patients or their families have any concerns about patient care and safety at CMHIP that we have not addressed, we encourage them to contact the hospital’s management. If the concerns cannot be resolved through the hospital, we encourage you to contact the Joint Commission. The public may contact the Joint Commission’s Office of Quality Monitoring to report any concerns or register complaints about a Joint Commission-accredited health care organization by calling 1-800-994-6610 or sending an email to complaint@jointcommission.org.


The public may also contact the Division of Mental Health with any concerns.  Their number is 303-866-7400.  To contact DMH Consumer and Family Affairs from outside the Denver area, please call 1-800-811-7648.
