We maintain the highest standards for outpatient accreditation
Cumberland Surgery Center is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF). This accreditation is today’s best assurance of safety, quality and efficiency.
Studies have demonstrated that, typically, the cost to a patient for a procedure performed in an accredited ambulatory surgery facility is only one-third to one-half of the cost for the same procedure performed in a hospital.
But this is only part of the story. One of the factors contributing to lower cost is the outstanding safety record of accredited ambulatory facilities. It has been shown that the incidence of complications in an accredited outpatient facility is comparable to that of a hospital-based ambulatory surgery facility. Safety plus low cost make the accredited ambulatory surgery facility an attractive option.
