Center for Specialty Surgery (CSS) has achieved accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
Status as an accredited organization means that CSS has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAAHC. More than 6,000 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States are accredited by AAAHC. Not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation; not all that undergo the rigorous on-site survey process are granted accreditation.
“We believe our patients deserve the best,” said Tina Caster, Chief Operating Officer of the Center for Specialty Surgery and Orthopedic + Fracture Specialists. “When you see our certificate of accreditation, you will know that AAAHC has closely examined our facility and procedures. It means we as an organization care enough about our patients to strive for the highest level of care possible.”
CSS has undergone an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by AAAHC expert surveyors comprising of physicians, nurses, and administrators who are actively involved in ambulatory health care. The survey was consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help CSS improve its care and services.
“Going through the process challenged us to find better ways to serve our patients, and it is a constant reminder that our responsibility is to strive to continuously improve the quality of care we provide,” said Caster.
