Guided by a passion for exceptional health care for all

“At URAC, we seek to inspire health organizations and communities to deliver a higher level of care.”

Shawn Griffin, MD, URAC President and CEO

For 30 years, we have been a leading nationwide accrediting organization setting the highest standards of care. We are uniquely positioned to help make “exceptional health care for all” a reality – and are determined to make that happen.

We recognize that not all care is delivered in major metropolitan areas. We know that equity and inclusion can be improved. It’s our intention to continually define and write standards that elevate health care for every individual. Every person matters. Every person deserves the best care. Together, we look forward to delivering on this vision and mission with you.
