Parkway Surgery Center

Parkway Surgery Center recently received accreditation from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).

Parkway Surgery Center received accreditation by meeting nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by the AAAHC.

Ambulatory health care organizations seeking AAAHC accreditation undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by the AAAHC's expert surveyors-volunteer physicians, nurses and administrators who are actively involved in ambulatory health care. The survey is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help organizations improve care and services.

AAAHC accreditation is specifically for organizations that provide medical or surgical care on an outpatient basis where an overnight stay would not be required.


Parkway Surgery Center also was designated as one of the top 100 best places to work in health care by Becker's ASC Review, a nationally recognized publication in the ambulatory surgery industry.
