North Little Rock – November 30th, 2015 – Arkansas Surgical Hospital has achieved accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Hospitals and Health Systems (AAHHS). Accreditation distinguishes this health care organization from many other facilities by proving the hospital provides the highest quality of care to its patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.
Status as an accredited organization means Arkansas Surgical Hospital has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAHHS. Not all hospitals seek accreditation; not all that undergo the rigorous on-site survey process are granted accreditation.
Physician-owned hospitals can provide certain advantages to patients that traditional hospitals cannot. 67% of physician-owned hospitals were awarded the highest possible ratings in a nationwide patient satisfaction survey.*
When you need surgery, it is important to choose the right hospital. You should consider its reputation for quality as well as whether the hospital is physician-owned. Looking at how a physician-owned hospital works shows the superior benefits it offers compared to a traditional hospital structure.
