Barnes Center Achieves AAAHC Accreditation
The Barnes Center at The Arch has once again earned three-year accreditation from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). This achievement further distinguishes the Barnes Center’s ongoing commitment to providing safe, high-quality care and services.
“Led by Director of Operations Lisa GreenPope and Director of Health Care Kathleen Coughlin, our health care team has continuously met the rigorous national standards and detailed criteria for the AAAHC. This accreditation is a well-deserved recognition of our team’s care and commitment to students,” says Cory Wallack, Ph.D., associate vice president of student health and wellness.
Ambulatory health care organizations seeking AAAHC accreditation undergo an extensive self-assessment and onsite survey by AAAHC expert surveyors—physicians, nurses and administrators, who are actively involved in ambulatory care. The survey is peer-based and educational, presenting best practices to help organizations such as the Barnes Center at the Arch improve care and services. The process covers all aspects of care including, members’ rights, case management, health education and wellness promotion, governance, administration and more.
