AAAASF is the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, which helps facilities:

  • Collaborate with other health care leaders

Established in 1980, AAAASF accredits thousands of facilities worldwide as the “Gold Standard in Accreditation” if they have met 100% of its high standards. Improving the quality of health care in outpatient facilities, the AAAASF accreditation assures the public that patent safety is the top priority.

AAAASF assists in programs including outpatient surgical procedures, oral maxillofacial, rehabilitation, dental, outpatient physical therapy agencies and ambulatory surgery centers. The AAAASF accredits facilities worldwide that are seeking accreditation to represent a high level of attention to the details that make an ambulatory medical facility safer.

What could AAAASF accreditation do for Facilities and for Patients?

Earning the AAAASF accreditation represents that the facility is complying with 100% of the standards in all categories of AAAASF accreditation, which are:

  • Personnel
  • Medical Records
  • Disaster Preparedness
  • General Safety
  • Quality Assurance
  • Clinical Practices

to reflect their commitment to quality health care. Each accredited facility is re-evaluated annually to measure its commitment to meeting 100% of its high standards, and AAAASF’s requirements for facility directors, medical specialist certifications and staff credentials. Patients would be allowed to create a sense of trust that the facility they are using is prioritizing patient safety by knowing that AAAASF holds facilities to a high standard like:

  • Holding outpatient and office-based facilities to hospital standards
