Congratulations to our team at Surgical Center of the Rockies for achieving AAAHC Accreditation!
October 21, 2016
Surgical Center of the Rockies (SCOR) has achieved a three-year accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), with Medicare Deemed Status. This accreditation recognizes this center as providing exceptional quality care to its patients and is evaluated by an external source.
At Practice Partners in Healthcare (PPH), we highly value the achievement of accreditation by the AAAHC. This inspection is an extensive and detailed on-site survey by administrators, physicians, nurses and life safety qualified experts. We truly believe that AAAHC accreditation sets ASCs apart and promotes each facility to be a leader in quality, safety and efficient outpatient surgical services.
“We are very proud of how hard the team worked to prepare for this accreditation and regulatory survey! It was a great learning experience for the team” stated Lee Anne Blackwell, VP of Clinical Services at PPH. “This survey with deemed status certification combines the Medicare inspection component which is added to the survey process to ensure that the surgery center is in full compliance with Medicare regulatory requirements. The report of findings from AAAHC revealed no clinical deficiencies! Congratulations to the team at the Surgical Center of the Rockies!”
