Recognition indicates Organization’s Commitment to Patient Safety
Big Rapids, Michigan – December 19, 2019 – West Michigan Surgery Center has received re-accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). The designation distinguishes West Michigan Surgery Center from many other outpatient facilities by its adherence to rigorous standards of care and safety. Status as an accredited organization means the Big Rapids ambulatory surgery center has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality healthcare set by the AAAHC.
Ambulatory health care organizations seeking AAAHC Accreditation undergo an extensive self-assessment and onsite survey by AAAHC expert surveyors – physicians, nurses, and administrators who are actively involved in ambulatory care. The survey is peer-based and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization improve its care and services.
Organizations, such as West Michigan Surgery Center, that earn AAAHC Accreditation embody an ongoing commitment to high-quality care and patient safety. While the onsite survey is an important component of the process, ongoing compliance and continuous improvement are part of the accreditation maintenance mindset that a facility integrates into its daily activities long after the survey has been completed.
“We are dedicated to providing our patients with evidence-based, cutting edge surgical treatments that offer the best results, in an affordable, safe, and effective manner,” says West Michigan Surgery Center Medical Director and Founder, Girish Juneja, MD. “Our skilled and knowledgeable medical team treats each day as another opportunity to ensure our patients receive the best care possible.”
West Michigan Surgery Center was first accredited by the AAAHC in 2016. More than 6,100 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States currently hold the designation, which lasts for a three year term.
