Accreditation by a recognized certifying organization is one method of determining that the surgeon you're considering recognizes the need for excellence in the delivery of health care services. The requirements for accreditation are detailed and exacting.
Dr. Yoho and his staff are proud of their affiliation with the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). The ability of both their facility and practice to meet those requirements by offering a fully accredited operating suite is a testament to their goal of high quality patient care.
The AAAHC is a nationally-recognized, independent, not-for-profit organization that examines non-hospital health care institutions and awards accreditation to those who meet its high standards.
AAAHC accreditation represents a high level of commitment and concern on the part of those who seek it. Health professionals, governmental agencies, insurers, and the general public recognize AAAHC accreditation as the symbol of quality in ambulatory health care.
Accreditation by AAAHC is your assurance that Dr. Yoho has made sure that your surgery is conducted under conditions that are as safe as an accredited hospital. Read more at www.aaahc.org.
