VERO BEACH — New Vision Surgical Center has achieved accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Accreditation distinguishes this ophthalmic surgical center from many other outpatient facilities for providing the highest quality of care to its patients.
Status as an accredited organization means New Vision Surgical 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.
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 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 Minotty.“We believe our patients deserve the best,” stated Paul V. Minotty, MD, Manager of New Vision Surgical Center. “When you see our certificate of accreditation, you will know that we as an organization care enough about our patients to strive for the highest level of care possible.”
New Vision Surgical Center is located at 1055 37th Place, directly across from Indian River Medical Center, in the heart of Vero Beach’s medical district. More information can be found at www.newvisioneyecenter.com.
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.
