Planetree Distinction Criteria and Application Process
The Distinction for Leadership and Innovation in Person-Centered Care Program extends the recognition pathway for high performing person-centered organizations. The program offers an opportunity for organizations that have previously earned Gold Certification for Excellence in Person-Centered Care to raise the bar even further and achieve a higher level of recognition. Achievement of Re-Certification with Distinction status requires organizations to maintain their current Gold-level performance while also building on their success to advance the model of person-centered care beyond the standards outlined in the Person-Centered Care Certification Program. This document outlines the requirements for earning Distinction, as well as the process for applying.
