Surgery Center

Columbia Surgery Center is a fully-licensed, Medicare approved ambulatory facility created for patients under the care of our ENT specialists. The Center was developed as an alternative to a traditional hospital setting, providing a safe, convenient and decidedly specialized medical experience. Our staff is completely focused on the needs of our patients.

Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care AAAHC_Accredited

Columbia Surgery Center has achieved accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).

Accreditation distinguishes this surgical center from many other outpatient facilities by providing the highest quality of care to its patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.

Status as an accredited organization means Columbia Surgery Center has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAAHC. More than 6,000 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States are accredited by AAAHC. Not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation; not all that undergo the rigorous on-site survey process are granted accreditation.

When you have your surgery in our surgery center, your anesthetic will be given by a board certified Anesthesiologist from the Anesthesia Associates group.
