Franklin Square Hospital Center earned a certificate of distinction from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations for its pediatric asthma management program.

The program was introduced to the Franklin Square Pediatric Emergency Department and Inpatient Unit in December 2008. The goal was to raise the standard of care by consistently and efficiently managing pediatric asthma patients using a team-oriented approach.

Franklin Square is one of only seven hospitals and organizations in the country and one of two in the state to have achieved Joint Commission certification for a pediatric asthma program.
