HOAG ORTHOPEDIC INSTITUTE’S MAIN STREET SPECIALTY SURGERY CENTER RECEIVES PERFECT SCORE FROM ACCREDITATION ASSOCIATION FOR AMBULATORY HEALTH CARE

12/21/2012

Main Street Specialty Surgery Center (MSSSC) in Orange, Calif. recently received the highest possible rating from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. (AAAHC) for its quality of service and exceptional performance. MSSSC received a Substantial Compliance rating on every standard, and the accreditation granted the center a three-year certification.

“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.

The AAAHC Certificate of Accreditation is a sign that an organization has committed to providing high-quality care and that it has demonstrated its commitment by achieving AAAHC Standards. “The real value of accreditation, however, lies in the consultative and educational process that precedes the awarding of the certificate,” says the AAAHC. “It is this on-going process of self-evaluation, peer review and consultation that helps an organization improve its care and services.”

Main Street Specialty Surgery Center was formed in 2000, with the goal of providing patients with the highest quality outpatient surgical care available. MSSSC is partnered with internationally renowned physicians, equipped with state of the art technology, and staffed with highly qualified and caring personnel in a warm and comfortable environment.

Approximately 7,000 operations and procedures are performed in their five operating rooms and two minor procedure rooms annually.
