Frisco, TX (PRWEB) February 13, 2015
Frisco Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC), a Physician Partners of America Affiliate, is pleased to announce that it has received accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Healthcare (AAAHC). Status as an accredited entity means that Frisco ASC has met nationally-recognized standards set by the AAAHC for the provision of quality health care.
The AAAHC is a private, non-profit organization that has been setting quality standards for ambulatory health care for 35 years. Through a unique peer-based review process founded on a collaborative, consultative, and educational approach, AAAHC strives to promote excellence in patient safety and care. To gain accreditation, centers must undergo rigorous self-assessments and on-site evaluations by AAAHC expert surveyors who have experience in ambulatory health care.
“Frisco Ambulatory Surgery Center is recognized for its commitment to high quality of care and substantial compliance with Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) standards,” states Frisco ASC Administrator Clifton Lee. “Achieving an AAAHC/Medicare deemed status survey means Frisco Ambulatory Surgery Center has demonstrated its compliance with the AAAHC standards and Medicare Conditions for Coverage.”
The AAAHC Certificate of Accreditation is widely recognized as a symbol of quality by insurers, medical organizations, state and federal agencies, and the public. More than 5,000 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States are accredited by AAAHC, but not all that undergo the rigorous on-site survey process are granted accreditation.
