Press release submitted by The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care


Moline, IL – January 15, 2013 –Regional SurgiCenter has achieved re-accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Accreditation distinguishes this surgical center from many other outpatient facilities by providing the highest quality of care to its patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.
Status as an accredited organization means Regional SurgiCenter has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAAHC. More than 5,000 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States are accredited by AAAHC. Not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation; not all that undergo the rigorous on-site survey process are granted accreditation.
"We believe our patients deserve the best," stated Dr. Arvind Movva, CEO of Regional SurgiCenter. "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 as an organization care enough about our patients to strive for the highest level of care possible."
Ambulatory health care organizations seeking accreditation by AAAHC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by AAAHC expert surveyors – 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.
"Going through the process challenged us to find better ways to serve our patients, and it is a constant reminder that our responsibility is to strive to continuously improve the quality of care we provide," said Movva.
The Regional SurgiCenter, founded in 1994, is a specialized, surgical facility located at 545 Valley View Drive in Moline. Our ambulatory surgical center provides exceptional outpatient, surgical care for routine procedures which do not require a patient to remain in the hospital overnight. At Regional SurgiCenter, you arrive in the morning, begin surgery within hours of your arrival and return home the same day. Our facility structure and approach to your care allows physicians and staff to communicate directly with one another rapidly. In addition, diagnoses, lab results and biopsy results are available to our patients promptly. This means you spend less time worrying, begin treatment sooner and move towards recovery more quickly.
The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, founded in 1979, is the leader in ambulatory health care accreditation with more than 5,000 organizations accredited nationwide. AAAHC accredits a variety of organizations including, ambulatory surgery centers, office-based surgery centers, endoscopy centers, student health centers, military health care clinics, and large medical and dental practices. AAAHC serves as an advocate for the provision of high-quality health care through the development of nationally recognized standards and through its survey and accreditation programs. 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.
