Among the First in America
Saint Joseph Hospital made history by opening its doors in 1883, establishing staff by 1892 and graduate medical education by 1893. In 1904, we received the first national recognition for hospitals when our physician education program was recognized by the American Medical Association (AMA). And in 1914, the AMA added Saint Joseph to the first exclusive list of accredited teaching hospitals.
Just as we are committed to providing patients with the highest quality care available, we continue to be committed to providing resident physicians with a high quality education. Our Residency program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The ACGME is a private, non-profit council that evaluates and accredits medical residency programs across the United States. We are proud to be fully accredited by ACGME.
