-A +A

The Olympia Surgery Center of Olympia Orthopaedic Associates has achieved accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Accreditation means that the Olympia Surgery Center has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by the AAAHC.

Ambulatory surgery centers seeking accreditation by the AAAHC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by AAAHC expert surveyors, including physicians, nurses, and administrators who are actively involved in ambulatory health care. Not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation and not all that undergo the rigorous on-site survey process are granted accreditation.

“We are proud to be accredited by the AAAHC,” says Dr. Gregory Byrd, orthopaedic surgeon at Olympia Orthopaedic Associates. “It is our goal to provide our patients the best care in the best facilities, and going through this process challenged us to find more ways we can better serve our patients.”
