The PSV Ambulatory Surgery Center Awarded Full AAAHC Accreditation

March 19, 2015 | By Justin Jones

Congratulations to PSV's Ambulatory Surgery Center on receiving full AAAHC accreditation. AAAHC, the Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Care, is the most prestigious and highest level of accreditation for ambulatory surgery centers. To qualify, rigid standards must be met in patient safety, emergency equipment, anesthesia instrumentation, procedural policy and quality control.

With this accreditation, the ASC is the only Ambulatory Surgery Center in Northern Virginia and one of very few in the country dedicated exclusively to children. This accreditation also means that most insurance carriers and payors will include PSV in their preferred networks.

The ASC held a successful open house event on March 19 that provided guided tours of the ASC for PSV practitioners and outside surgeons already using the ASC, as well as other local surgeons who might be interested in utilizing the ASC moving forward, effective April 1.

A special thanks goes out to the ASC staff and all PSV employees who had a helping hand in making this all possible!
