University Gastroenterology receives three-year accreditation from key panel
SYRACUSE, N.Y. — University Gastroenterology at the Philip G. Holtzapple Endoscopy Center at University Hospital has achieved three-year accreditation—the highest level of accreditation—from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC/ Accreditation Association).
Accreditation distinguishes University Gastroenterology from many other outpatient surgical facilities by providing a safe work environment and the highest quality of care to patients. Status as an accredited organization means that University Gastroenterology has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality healthcare, set by the Accreditation Association.
“This is an important milestone in the continuing growth and success of our healthcare organization,” said Ronald D. Szyjkowski, M.D., medical director of the University Gastroenterology. “We have had an unwavering commitment to providing the highest levels of quality care to our patients and the same high level of conduct in our business practices. Accreditation by the AAAHC is proof of this commitment, and signifies that we have met the rigorous standards of a nationally recognized third party. Our status as an AAAHC accredited organization allows us to provide an extra measure of confidence to our community.”
Ambulatory healthcare organizations seeking accreditation by the AAAHC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by the Accreditation Association’s expert surveyors—volunteer physicians, nurses and administrators who are actively involved in ambulatory healthcare. The survey is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization improve its care and services.
