Hoag Orthopedic Institute's Main Street Specialty Surgery Center Receives Highest Possible Rating From AAAHC
Main Street Specialty Surgery Center in Orange, Calif., recently received the highest possible rating from the AAAHC for its quality of service and performance. The surgery center received a "substantial compliance" rating on every standard, granting the center a three-year accreditation.
"We tirelessly strive for excellence, and are proud to announce that these most recent results have shown that," said Jeff Bernhardt, RN, clinical director of MSSSC. "The community we serve deserves nothing short of perfection."
Accreditation is a voluntary process through which a health care organization is able to measure the quality of its services and performance against nationally-recognized standards. The accreditation process involves self-assessment by the organization, followed by a thorough on-site review by the AAAHC's expert surveyors, who are themselves health care professionals.
Main Street Specialty Surgery Center was formed in 2000. Approximately 7,000 operations and procedures are performed in its five operating rooms and two minor procedure rooms annually.
