To provide the most comprehensive pediatric services available for children in the Rio Grande Valley, South Texas Health System Children’s launched its asthma program in 2010 to help children treat and manage the disease while raising awareness for the dangers of asthma and offering flare-up prevention advice to parents. Following a disease specific certification survey, the program was initially certified by The Joint Commission in 2011, making STHS Children’s the only facility in the four-county region to hold the designation by the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in healthcare.

Last month, the hospital’s asthma program was once again recertified for another two years, confirming the program follows all standards, uses clinical practice guidelines and meets performance measurement and certification participation requirements.
