Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC)

The Peninsula Surgery Center (PSC) is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Accreditation distinguishes our surgical center from many other outpatient facilities by its adherence to rigorous, nationally recognized standards of care and safety. More than 1,600 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States are currently accredited by the AAAHC.

Ambulatory health care organizations seeking AAAHC accreditation undergo an extensive self-assessment and an onsite survey by AAAHC expert surveyors—physicians, nurses and administrators who are actively involved in ambulatory care. The survey is peer-based and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization improve its care and services.

“We are proud of the commitment of our team toward achieving the goal of AAAHC accreditation—marking the completion of months of hard work which will ensure we stay properly focused on patient care excellence”  – John Dearborn, MD, Medical Director
