PAC Credentials

National Accreditation by AAAHC

The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) is the leading national accreditation agency for freestanding ambulatory surgery centers like PAC.

AAAHC Accreditation is a voluntary process by which PAC is able to measure our quality of services and performance against nationally recognized standards. The accreditation process focuses on all aspects of an ambulatory surgery center, including:

  • Rights of Patients
  • Governance
  • Administration
  • Quality of Care Provided
  • Quality Management and Improvement
  • Clinical Records and Health Information
  • Infection Prevention and Control, and Safety
  • Facilities and Environment
  • Anesthesia Services
  • Surgical Services
  • Pharmaceutical Services
  • Pathology and Medical Laboratory Services
  • Diagnostic and Other Imaging Services

AAAHC Accreditation is a symbol that PAC is dedicated to providing high-quality health care and that it has demonstrated its commitment by measuring up to the AAAHC’s high standards.
