We are very proud of Paulsen Street Surgery Center (PSSC) on their achievement of a three-year accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), with Medicare Deemed Status. AAAHC recognizes centers that provide the highest quality care. This accreditation is completed 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. "I am very proud of the team on the recent successful AAAHC deemed status survey," said Lee Anne Blackwell, VP of Clinical Services at PPH. "They all have worked very hard for this great accomplishment!" We are proud that PSSC is not only an excellent place to receive care but a great place to work. Keep up the amazing work!
