Jupiter Outpatient Surgery Center Accreditation
Jupiter Outpatient Surgery Center has received accreditation from The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). The status as an accredited organization means Jupiter Outpatient Surgery Center has passed a series of rigorous and nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care, set by AAAHC.
AAAHC is a private, non-profit organization formed in 1979, and a leader in developing standards to advance and promote patient safety, quality care, and value for ambulatory health care through peer-based accreditation processes, education, and research. Certificates of accreditation are awarded to organizations that are found to be in compliance with AAAHC Standards.
AAAHC currently accredits more than 6,000 organizations in a wide variety of ambulatory health care settings including ambulatory surgery centers, community health centers, medical and dental group practices, medical home practices, and managed care organizations, as well as Indian and student health centers, among others. AAAHC is also the official accrediting organization for the US Coast Guard. With a single focus on the ambulatory care community, AAAHC offers organizations a cost-effective, flexible, and collaborative approach to accreditation.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) officially recognizes AAAHC accreditation requirements for surgical centers, and AAAHC-accredited ambulatory surgical centers have "deemed status" and are eligible to participate in the Medicare program.
