Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs)

AAAHC has been surveying and accrediting ambulatory surgery centers since its founding in 1979.

The AAAHC holds Medicare deemed status from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Accreditation surveys can be combined with, or independent of, Medicare surveys.

Review AAAHC policies and procedures and current Standards in the Accreditation Handbook for Ambulatory Health Care or the Accreditation Handbook for Medicare Deemed Status Surveys.

Life Safety Code issues are among the most frequent deficiencies cited for ASCs in the Medicare Deemed Status program.
