On February, 21 2015 the Health Center received a three year accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). The AAAHC, founded in 1979, is the leader in ambulatory health care accreditation with more than 5,000 organizations accredited nationwide. AAAHC accreditation is recognized as a symbol of quality by third-party payers, medical organizations, liability insurance companies, state and federal agencies and the public. The dedication and effort necessary for an organization to be accredited is substantial and the compliance with those standards implies a commitment to continual self-evaluation and continuous improvement.
As an accredited organization, the Health Center has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAAHC. This demonstrates our staff’s dedication to the patient. We are proud to have met the challenge of accreditation, and intend to consistently uphold the principles of quality improvement in patient care in the future.
