On Saturday, October 24, 2015, Dr. Jewell’s office-based surgery facility was inspected and accredited again by the American Association for the Accreditation Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (www.aaaasf.org). This is an important achievement for Dr. Mark Jewell and Rebecca Fickas, R.N. the Director of Nursing as it demonstrates an ongoing commitment to safety and quality.
We believe that facility accreditation sets a high standard for patient care and best in class outcomes. It’s more to having surgery than just selecting your surgeon. To achieve this goal, every AAAASF-accredited ambulatory surgery facility must meet stringent national standards for equipment, operating room safety, personnel and surgeon credentials.
AAAASF is an accrediting agency that provides patients with the assurance of safety and quality in all aspects of their outpatient surgery experience. AAAASF accreditation has been recognized as the “Gold Standard” for facility accreditation.
Dr. Jewell and his staff believe that the combination of surgeon credentials, staff training, and facility accreditation offer patients a great experience in our out-patient surgery center.
