The Stony Brook University Student Health Service has been accredited for three years by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
“This is an important milestone in the continuing growth and success of our health care organization,” said Robert Ansbach, Student Health Service Associate Director. “Pursuing accreditation shows our commitment and distinguishes our clinic from many other outpatient facilities in providing the highest levels of quality care to our patients, and the same high level of quality in our business practices.”
Status as an accredited organization means the Stony Brook University Student Health Service has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAAHC. More than 5,000 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States are accredited by AAAHC. Not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation; not all that undergo the rigorous on-site survey process are granted accreditation.
“We are proud to have met the challenge of accreditation and intend to consistently uphold the principles of quality improvement in patient care in the future,” added Ansbach.
