AAHHS offers accreditation for acute care and critical access hospitals. The programs parallel those of HFAP which means that a hospital can choose to use a cost-effective accreditation survey as a consultative step in preparing for state inspection.
For independent ASCs and outpatient care facilities, accreditation is currently offered through the well-established HFAP programs. For hospitals that provide outpatient services through an affiliated ASC (under a separate CCN), AAHHS-HFAP offers the opportunity for concurrent surveys. Learn more about HFAP programs here.
