Accreditation

We are Committed to Excellence


Garden State Endoscopy & Surgery Center has distinguished itself from other area centers, seeking and achieving accreditation through the AAAHC, an independent not-for-profit organization, year after year.

Organizations aspiring to credentialing through the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site evaluation by AAAHC expert surveyors – physicians, nurses, and administrators who are actively involved in ambulatory health care. The evaluation process is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization improve its care and services.

As practitioners, we are deeply committed to this undertaking as a causal result of our shared philosophy: a firm belief each of our patients deserve the most comprehensive, up-to-date, digestive treatment options available. Bringing in an outside, unbiased establishment bolsters our basis for feeling confident in the depth, range and knowledge of services offered.

Status as an accredited organization means that Garden State Endoscopy & Surgery Center has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care. While more than 5,000 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States are accredited by AAAHC, not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation, and not all that undergo the rigorous on-site survey process are granted accreditation.

The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, founded in 1979, is the leader in ambulatory health care accreditation with more than 5,000 organizations accredited nationwide. AAAHC accredits a variety of organizations including, ambulatory surgery centers, office-based surgery centers, endoscopy centers, student health centers, military health care clinics, and large medical and dental practices. AAAHC serves as an advocate for the provision of high-quality health care through the development of nationally recognized standards and through its survey and accreditation programs. AAAHC accreditation is recognized as a symbol of quality by third-party payers, medical organizations, liability insurance companies, state and federal agencies, and the public.

“We believe that our patients deserve the very best. When you see our certificate of accreditation, you will know that AAAHC, an independent, not-for-profit organization, has closely examined our facility and procedures. It means that we, as an organization, are truly committed to the well-being of our patients and strive to provide the highest level of care possible.”
