Not All Surgery Centers are Created Equal

Perimeter Outpatient Surgical Associates (POSA) has achieved re-accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Accreditation distinguishes orthopedic ambulatory surgery centers from other outpatient facilities by providing the highest quality of care to its patients. Status as an accredited organization means a surgery center has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by the AAAHC.

More than 6,000 ambulatory health care organizations across the U.S. are accredited, but not all organizations seek accreditation. What's more, not all that undergo the rigorous on-site survey process are granted accreditation. Organizations seeking accreditation by AAAHC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by AAAHC expert surveyors. Surveyors consist of physicians, nurses and administrators 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 services.

"We believe our patients deserve the best," stated Cheryl Nieves, O.R. Director of POSA. "When you see our certificate of accreditation, you will know that AAAHC, an independent, not-for-profit organization, has closely examined our facility and procedures. It means we care enough about our patients to strive for the highest level of care possible."

The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care was founded in 1979 and is the leader in ambulatory health care accreditation.
