> The Warm Springs Health and Wellness Center has achieved accreditation from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, according to Carol DeVaney, clinic chief executive officer.
This designation means the Warm Springs Health and wellness Center has passed a series of rigorous and nationally-recognized standards for the provision of quality health care, set by the accreditation association.
Over 2,600 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States are accredited by the AAAHC.
"Accreditation underscores our longstanding commitment to providing the highest possible levels of quality care to the community we serve," said DeVaney. "We are pleased and proud to have our efforts recognized with this accreditation."
Ambulatory health care organizations seeking accreditation by the AAAHC undergo an extensive on-site, peer-based survey of facilities and services. Not all organizations seek accreditation and not all undergoing the on-site survey are granted accreditation.
Among the types of ambulatory health care organizations that can seek accreditation are: ambulatory and office-based surgery centers, single and multi-specialty group practices, college health center, dental group practices, community health centers, occupational health centers and managed care organizations.
