Whether you are getting ready to undergo a surgical procedure, selecting a pediatrician for your newborn, or something in between, your health care choices matter.

You should feel empowered to ask your physician questions, not only about his or her personal credentials and training, but also about the practice as a whole.

Seeing the AAAHC Certificate of Accreditation can help answer some of your questions.

What is accreditation?
Accreditation by AAAHC means that the organization has undergone a thorough, independent survey of its policies and practices against nationally-recognized Standards. The accreditation process involves self-assessment by the organization, followed by an on-site review conducted by AAAHC surveyors, who are themselves health care professionals.

AAAHC accreditation is a sign that the organization has committed to providing high-quality care and that it has demonstrated its commitment through an on-going process of self evaluation, peer review and education to continuously improve its care and services.

What is AAAHC?
AAAHC, or the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc., is a private, non-profit organization formed in 1979 to assist ambulatory health care organizations in improving the quality of care provided to patients. It accomplishes this by establishing, reviewing, and revising standards, measuring performance and providing consultation and education.
