We are so proud and excited to let you know that our clinics were rewarded with continued accreditation from AAAHC, Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care. Every single one of our clinics had to go through rigorous assessment that includes on-site surveying, self-evaluation, testing and peer review to get the accreditation through May 31, 2014. Family Planning Associates just didn’t just pass by the skin of our teeth either, the surveyor found no deficiencies in any of our facilities.
It takes years for staff and doctors to prepare for a test of this magnitude, and part of getting ready requires everyone to always work with patients at their highest level of ability. Before the main evaluation, our clinicsâ€™ staff worked extremely hard to improve up on the quality of our patient care.
Due to the challenging nature of the test, not all facilities that go through this process are rewarded with accreditation, and we are proud to be one of the 5,000 plus facilities with AAAHC in the United States.
The certificate is only given to facilities that show the highest quality of care to all patients which is something our clinics are always striving to do. Through the process we not only were tested for the quality of our clinics, but further educated ourselves on state of the art knowledge of patient care.
We choose to go through this voluntary process to make sure our quality stays consistent while we learn how to meet the needs of patients even more thoroughly. Our clinics will continue to apply the high standards that are necessary to continue accreditation through-out the years. When patients come to Family Planning Associates they are in the best facilitiesthat are some of the best in the country that are always working to be better.
