As an ambulatory surgery center that follows strict licensing, accreditation and patient safety standards to ensure our patients receive the highest quality and safest care, we are deeply concerned by the recent stories that called out patient tragedies to undermine a proven healthcare service in order to gain viewership and readers.
We are Medicare approved and undergo routine voluntary accreditation screening and surveying. All of our patients receive a complete health assessment and medical history review to ensure they are an appropriate candidate for care in an ambulatory surgery center. However, as with all surgical procedures, even those in the hospital, there are risks. Patients should review those risks with their physician before making a final decision on their care.
We want to assure our current and future patients that we are committed to offering a safe, high-quality patient experience and thank you for letting us be a part of your healthcare.
