Endoscopy Unit Accreditation

On April 15, 2015, The Endoscopy Service at Digestive Disease Associates of Rockland underwent a comprehensive accrediation survey by The American Association for Accrediation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (AAAASF). Our Endoscopy service receive a full accreditation without any deficiencies. 

The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. was established in 1980 to develop an accreditation program to standardize and improve the quality of medical and surgical care in ambulatory surgery facilities while assuring the public of high standards for patient care and safety in an accredited facility. Today more than 2000 outpatient facilities are accredited by AAAASF, one of the largest not-for-profit accrediting organizations in the United States. Physicians, legislators, state and national health agencies and patients acknowledge that AAAASF stands alone in setting the "Gold Standard" for quality patient care for all ambulatory care facilities. 

In addition, our Histopathology Lab was once again, accredited by the College Of American Pathologists (CAP). The College of American Pathologists (CAP) is the leading organization of board-certified pathologists, serves patients, pathologists, and the public by fostering and advocating excellence in the practice of pathology and laboratory medicine worldwide. They set the "Gold Standard" for quality patient care for all clinical laboratories.
