Short Hills Surgery Center Achieves AAAHC Reaccreditation

February 11, 2014 at 8:33 PM

Short Hills Surgery Center has achieved reaccreditation 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. The center first received accreditation in 2007 and is reevaluated every 3 years in order to retain the designation.

Status as an accredited organization means Short Hills Surgery Center 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.

“Our vision is to be the number one choice ambulatory surgery center of physicians, patients and employees,” said Edward M. Decter, M.D., medical director of Short Hills Surgery Center. “Pursuing accreditation means that we as an organization care enough about our patients to strive for the highest level of care possible. Our center has all the accreditations of a traditional hospital, but we adhere to an even higher standard of care, which is reflected both in our reaccreditation and patient satisfaction scores.”

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.

Short Hills Surgery Center in Millburn brings together over seventy specialists who are committed to providing the highest quality care in the safest environment possible. Our surgeons have extensive experience in a wide range of specialties: Orthopaedics and Spine Care, General Surgery, ENT, Gynecology, Urology, Pain Management, Podiatry, Retinal Surgery, Oral Maxillofacial Surgery and Plastic Surgery. Opened in 2005, our doctor-owned center combines advanced surgical skills and unsurpassed technology in a safe, pristine and comfortable setting.

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.
