Lincoln Regional Center accredited

The state-run Lincoln Regional Center has been fully accredited after a five-day inspection by Joint Commission surveyors.

Nebraska's director of behavioral health says some minor deficiencies were found during the January evaluation of the psychiatric hospital but they've since been corrected.

The Joint Commission is a not-for-profit organization that evaluates the safety and effectiveness of care at U.S. health facilities. It conducts unannounced surveys of hospitals every three years.
