Hall Health Center awarded accreditation from the AAAHC

Hall Health Center was recently awarded a three year term of accreditation from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). This accreditation demonstrates that Hall Health Center is compliant with more than 600 standards that advance and promote patient safety, quality care and value for ambulatory health care.

Hall Health Staff worked hard to prepare for the survey and for the rigorous 2-day survey at Hall health Center. The visit entailed two days of meetings with two on-site surveyors, who spent time interviewing staff and reading policies, as well as visiting our clinical areas, observing how we work and talking to patients, providers, staff, and management. We had an hour-long closing conference with many accolades from our surveyors – a few examples include:

  • We saw lots of patient-centered behaviors – “ you are an impressive group and people really seem to like working here–that has a powerful impact on your patients!”
  • Excellent QI work and communication at all levels
  • Transparency in metrics and clinic performance
  • Constant improvements at every level
  • Strong safety and infection control practices

This marks 20 consecutive years of accreditation for Hall Health Center.
