The UNT Student Health and Wellness Center received reaccreditation from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) for another three years.
AAAHC accreditation means that an organization participates in on-going self evaluation, peer review and education to continuously improve its care and services. The organization also commits to a thorough, on-site survey by AAAHC surveyors, who are themselves health care professionals, at least every three years.
“Accreditation shows our commitment to providing the highest levels of quality care to our patients and the same level of conduct in our business practices,” said SHWC Executive Director Herschel Voorhees, DO. “Accreditation by the AAAHC is proof of this commitment and signifies that we have met the rigorous standards of a nationally recognized third party.”
Some of the things the SHWC did in order to receive reaccreditation included:
Getting reaccredited also ensures the SHWC’s operations are in order and will comply with commercial insurance regulations once it starts accepting various insurance plans within the next year.
