Health Services Is Re-Accredited by the AAAHC
STATESBORO, Ga. – Georgia Southern University’s Health Services has once again been recognized for offering exemplary health care to students. Health Services was recently re-accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) and recognized as a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) after an extensive practice assessment and on-site visit.
Georgia Southern is one of only three college health 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.
Since their initial accreditation, Health Services has relocated to a larger, state-of-the-art facility allowing for enhanced patient care and expanded services. Surveyors from the AAAHC noted that “Georgia Southern Health Services leadership and staff members have an outstanding level of commitment to providing high quality health care to students…The brand new building provides a beautiful setting, with excellent patient flow. 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.”
Health Services strives to provide cost-effective, high-quality health care to meet students’ full range of medical needs. “Our university is so fortunate to be recognized in this way,” said Diane Norris, Director of Health Services. “Providing this outstanding level of care to our students is our priority.”
