Hoag Orthopedic Institute Surgery Center - Newport Beach, previously known
as Orthopedic Surgery Center of Orange County (OSCOC), is accredited by
the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Accreditation
distinguishes the Orthopedic Surgery Center from many other outpatient
facilities by providing the highest quality of care to its patients as
determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.
Status as an accredited organization means that Hoag Orthopedic Institute
Surgery Center - Newport Beach 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.
“We believe our patients deserve the best,” stated Karen Ollila,
Operations Manager of Hoag Orthopedic Institute Surgery Center - Newport
Beach. “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 we as an organization care
enough about our patients to strive for the highest level of care possible.”
Ambulatory health care organizations seeking accreditation by AAAHC undergo
an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by AAAHC expert surveyors.
“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.”
