Premise Health Receives AAAHC Accreditation for 94 Centers, Most in Industry
Premise Health, the leading direct health care company, has again received accreditation through the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Premise now has 94 accredited wellness centers, increasing from 54 accredited centers in 2016.
The AAAHC Network Accreditation Program measures an organization’s strategy against stringent, national quality standards across all sites of care to determine eligibility. Premise has the greatest number of accreditations of any onsite health provider and the most centers accredited as medical homes.
“This accreditation is the pinnacle of external validation in our industry, reaffirming our commitment to high-quality, integrated health care that changes lives,” said Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jonathan Leizman. “We are honored and humbled to be recognized in this way.”
AAAHC Network Accreditation is granted to the corporate organization and each individual site of care included in the network. Each site receives a certificate identifying it as being operated by an AAAHC-accredited entity.
“To achieve AAAHC accreditation, Premise Health underwent a rigorous onsite survey that verified compliance to nationally recognized health and safety standards, policies, and procedures. Organizations that earn AAAHC accreditation embody the spirit of 1095 Strong, quality every day, which reflects an ongoing commitment to high-quality care and patient safety throughout the 1,095 days of the accreditation cycle,” said Dorota Rakowiecki, director of accreditation operations. “We are proud to partner with Premise Health as it continues to invest in ongoing worksite health quality improvements and prioritize patient safety and quality of care across all teams and departments.”
The 94 accredited centers offer a blend of health and wellness services including primary care, occupational health, fitness, dental, musculoskeletal, health education and health promotion, travel medicine and behavioral health.
Premise Health operates more than 600 onsite and nearsite wellness centers across the country, serving more than 275 of the nation’s leading companies, including a significant number of Fortune 1000 businesses.
