The nationally recognized Accrediting Association for Ambulatory Health Care has re-accredited the Health Center at Auraria.
AAAHC accreditation has only been achieved by approximately 25 percent of campus health centers.
The health center, an MSU Denver department that provides tri-institutional medical services to the Auraria campus community, was informed in February.
The center received “substantially compliant” ratings for all 23 required components of its on-site review, which included:
- Quality of patient care
- Organizational administration and governance structure
- Patient and staff safety
- Infection control
- Health education
- Mental and behavioral health
- Radiology services
- Risk management
- Clinical documentation
- Staff credentialing
- Lab testing
- Prescription drugs
- In-house medical procedures
The AAAHC is the national accrediting agency for surgical centers and out-patient medical centers throughout the United States and seeks to ensure each accredited facility performs with consistent quality standards that follow evidence-based medical guidelines to ensure patient safety and reputable service delivery.
