Keeling Health Center is accredited by AAAHC
The Keeling Health Center received a three year re-accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) in October of 2010. The health center has been accredited since the fall of 2001.
Status as an accredited organization means The Keeling Health Center has passed a series of rigorous and nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care, set by the AAAHC. Over 1,300 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States are accredited by the AAAHC.
"Accreditation underscores our long-standing commitment to providing the highest possible level of quality care to the community we serve," according to Susan Bornak, Director of Health Services. "We are pleased and proud to have our efforts recognized by this accreditation."
Ambulatory health care organizations seeking accreditation by AAAHC undergo an extensive on-site, peer-based survey of its facilities and services. Not all ambulatory health care 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 AAAHC accreditation are ambulatory and office based surgical centers; single and multi-specialty group practices; college and university health services; dental group practices; community health centers; occupational health centers; and managed care organizations.
