National Accreditation

The Reproductive Medicine Group’s IVF/Surgery Center Achieves National Accreditation

The Reproductive Medicine Group’s IVF/Surgery Center is certified by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). The facility is the only IVF/Surgery Center in the Tampa Bay area to have received this prestigious accreditation.

Status as an accredited organization means The Reproductive Medicine Group’s IVF/Surgery Center has passed a series of rigorous and nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by the AAAHC. Over 1,300 ambulatory health care organizations across the United Stares are accredited by the AAAHC.

Accreditation underscores their long-standing commitment to providing the highest possible levels of quality care to the community they serve. The Reproductive Medicine Group is proud to have their efforts recognized with this accreditation.

Ambulatory health care organizations seeking accreditation by AAAHC undergo an extensive on-site, peer-based survey of its facility and services. Not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation; not all undergoing the on-site survey are granted accreditation.

Among the types of ambulatory health care organizations that can seek AAAHC accreditation are ambulatory and office based surgery centers, single and multi-specialty group practices, college and university health services, dental group practices, community health centers, occupational health centers and managed care organizations.
