Springfield Clinic Achieves AAAHC Accreditation

Posted: Updated:
 SPRINGFIELD – Springfield Clinic has achieved accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).

Springfield Clinic has achieved a full, three-year accreditation, which is the highest level possible. All Springfield Clinic medical officers and ancillary services throughout central Illinois share in this achievement. This is the 20th consecutive year Springfield Clinic has achieved accreditation.

This accreditation distinguishes Springfield Clinic from other outpatient facilities by providing the highest quality of care to its patients. Accreditation is determined by an independent, external process of evaluation. The AAAHC requires the facility seeking accreditation to meet nationally recognized standards.

The Springfield Clinic shares this achievement with 5,000 ambulatory health care organizations across the country who meet these standards. Springfield Clinic also had to undergo extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by AAAHC surveyors who consist of physicians, nurses and administrators actively involved in ambulatory health care. These surveyors consult and provide advice to help the organization improve its care and services.

“This recognition validates the efforts we have made in the past and inspires us to continue leading the way in health care quality,” Chief Executive Officer at Springfield Clinic Randy Bryant says.

Clinic officials are declaring Thursday, July 2 as “Denim Day” at all Springfield Clinic offices to celebrate the honor. Employees will wear jeans as a departure from their traditional workplace attire.
