Credentialing

Patient safety is of paramount importance to us at Emerson Hospital. Our credentials office serves as a gatekeeper for patient safety by ensuring that the physicians who deliver care here are fully qualified to do so.

Credentialing is the process used to evaluate and verify the qualifications and practice history of a doctor. This process includes reviewing a doctor's completed education, training, residency and licenses. It also includes any certifications issued by a board in the doctor's area of specialty — what’s referred to as board-certification.

The Emerson Hospital credentialing process adheres to the standards and guidelines set forth by:

  • The Joint Commission
  • The Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine
  • The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid

For questions related to credentials, please call 978-287-3018, fax 978-287-3122 or send an email to credentials_office@emersonhosp.org
