Akkary Surgery Center of Morgantown Achieves AAAHC Accreditation
Akkary Surgery Center has achieved accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Accreditation distinguishes this Office Based Surgery 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.
Status as an accredited organization means Akkary 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.
“We are dedicated to providing the best care for our patients” stated Dr. Ehab Akkary, Surgeon and Founder of Akkary Surgery Center. “We are very proud of our accreditation. AAAHC, an independent, not-for-profit organization, has closely examined our facility and procedures. This accreditation means we, as an organization, care enough about our patients to strive for the highest level of care possible.”
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.
“Going through the process challenged us to continue to find better ways to serve our patients, and it is a constant reminder that our responsibility is to strive to continuously improve the quality of care we provide,” said Brionna Akkary, RN.
Dr. Akkary is Board Certified in General Surgery and in Cosmetic Surgery. He has been serving West Virginia for over a decade. Akkary Surgery Center was founded in 2012, it offers different services including Cosmetic Surgery and gastric balloons for weight loss.
