Matthews Surgery Center has achieved accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).

Status as an accredited organization means Matthews Surgery Center has passed a series of rigorous and nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care, set by the Accreditation Association.  The compliance with those standards implies a commitment to continual self-evaluation and continuous improvement.

Ambulatory health care organizations seeking accreditation by the AAAHC undergo an extensive on-site, peer-based survey of its facilities and services.  Not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation; not all undergoing the on-site survey are granted accreditation.

Our status as an AAAHC accredited organization allows us to provide an extra measure of confidence to our community.  We are proud to have met the challenge of accreditation and intend to consistently uphold the principles of quality improvement and quality care in the future.
