SOMERSET SURGICAL CENTER
Somerset Surgical Center is the first Ambulatory Surgical Center specialized in orthopedic surgery and pain management in both Somerset and Hunterdon Counties that has been awarded the certificate of accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. (AAAHC). The award means that Somerset Surgical Center, PA has met nationally recognized standards for quality health care set by the Chicago-based accrediting organization.
"We are pleased and proud to have achieved accreditation" said James Dwyer, MD. "We think accreditation is very important because it gives us nation-wide recognition for our high standard patient care services, and we feel that our patients are the ultimate benefactors from our participation in the accreditation program", added James Parolie, MD, Medical Director of the surgical center.
In order to achieve accreditation, Somerset Surgical Center, PA underwent an extensive on-site survey of its facilities and all aspects of patient care services. The survey findings resulted in a three-year accreditation, a very favorable decision. Not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation and not all that undergo an on-site survey receive favorable decisions. In a letter to Somerset Surgical Center, the AAAHC president said, "the dedication and effort necessary to achieve accreditation is substantial. Somerset Surgical Center, PA is to be commended for this accomplishment."
