Health Services is reaccredited by the AAAHC
After an extensive practice assessment and on-site visit, Georgia Southern University’s Health Services has, once again, been recognized for offering exemplary health care to students.
Health Services was recently reaccredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) and recognized as a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH). Georgia Southern is one of only three college centers in the state to hold accreditation by the AAAHC and the only of those to be certified as a PCMH. The PCMH approach to care embraces comprehensive proactive, preventative and chronic care management and treatment.
“Our University is so fortunate to be recognized once again for our commitment to outstanding care,” said Director of Health Services Diane Norris. “Our dedicated management team and staff continue to make this possible for our students.”
Since their initial accreditation, Health Services has relocated to a larger, state-of-the-art facility allowing for enhanced patient care and expanded services.
“The brand new building provides a beautiful setting with excellent patient flow,” surveyors from the AAAHC noted. “The organization strives to optimize the use of technology in every way to improve the efficiency of its operations and to enhance quality of care. Georgia Southern Health Services leadership and staff members have an outstanding level of commitment to providing high quality healthcare to students.”
