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
“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.
