In 1991, North Oak Ambulatory Surgery Center became the first established, State Licensed Outpatient Ambulatory Surgery Center in Lowndes County. This facility offers a private onsite surgery suite for the convenience of our patients.
North Oak Ambulatory Surgery Center is accredited by the Accreditation Association For Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. (AAAHC). In May 2008, our facility received the highest accreditation available.
The AAAHC Certificate of Accreditation has become a benchmark of quality not only to those involved in health care and delivery management, but to the general public. The accreditation certificate is a symbol to others that an organization is committed to providing high quality care and that it has demonstrated its commitment by measuring up to AAAHC's highest standards. Accreditation is a voluntary process through which an Ambulatory Health Care organization is able to measure the quality of it services and performance against nationally recognized standards. Any accredited facility must meet these standards and be resurveyed every three years to maintain accreditation status.
