Accredited by the AAAHC/Accreditation Association
The Heart of America Surgery Center received a three year accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC/Accreditation Association) in 2014 and was re-accredited in 2017. Accreditation distinguishes this surgical center from many other outpatient surgical facilities by providing a safe work environment and the highest quality of care to patients.
Status as an accredited organization means the Heart of America Surgery Center has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care, set by the Accreditation Association. More than 3,600 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States are accredited by AAAHC. Not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation; not all undergoing the on-site survey are granted accreditation.
Ambulatory health care organizations seeking accreditation by the AAAHC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by the Accreditation Association's expert surveyors - who are actively involved in ambulatory health care. The survey is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization improve its care and serves.
