Upcoming Medicare Survey!

Great news: we passed our survey for 2018! What a great feeling.

Every three years, AAAASF conducts a white-glove survey of Medicare-certified Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASC). Our three-year onsite survey was last Thursday. We originally were certified in 2006, then had successful recertifying onsite surveys in 2009, 2012, and  2015.  Big topic focus for this cycle was Emergency Preparedness. Dr. Downey is a Sustaining Member of the Northwest Healthcare Response Network (NWHRN), which acts as a central coordinating agency in the event of disaster.
