About Us: Accreditation
Orthopedic Surgery Center is licensed by the State of Louisiana and CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services). We participate with both Medicare and Medicaid plans, and we proudly serve this community.
Orthopedic Surgery Center achieved a 3 year accreditation through AAAHC (Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care) in February of 2012. Accreditation distinguishes this surgical center from many other outpatient facilities by providing the highest quality of care to its patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation. Status as an accredited organization means OSC has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAAHC and CMS ( Centers for Medicare and Medicaid). Ambulatory health care organizations seeking accreditation by AAAHC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by expert surveyors – physicians, nurses, and administrators who are actively involved in ambulatory health care. Many medical insurance companies require accreditation before they award contracts to surgery centers.
