Wellington Regional Medical Center recently achieved accreditation from the Surgical Review Corporation (SRC) as a Center of Excellence in Robotic and Minimally Invasive Surgery. This accreditation recognizes WRMC’s commitment and high standard of delivery of quality patient care and safety.
Status as an accredited Center of Excellence means that WRMC has met nationally and internationally recognized standards. Not all hospitals and surgeons seek accreditation; and not all that undergo the rigorous inspection process are granted accreditation.
“Achieving this accreditation stands as a testament to our dedication, setting new benchmarks in surgical innovation and fostering better outcomes for our patients,” WRMC CEO Pam Tahan said.
Healthcare facilities and surgeons seeking an SRC accreditation undergo an extensive assessment and inspection process to ensure that the applicant meets SRC’s proven standards and requirements.
These requirements include surgical volumes, facility equipment, clinical pathways and standardized operating procedures, an emphasis on patient education and continuous quality assessment. Inspectors educate staff in the accredited departments on best practices to help an organization improve its care and services.
“We’re proud to recognize Wellington Regional Medical Center for its commitment to advancing and providing quality care for all patients,” said Gary M. Pratt, CEO of SRC. “This accreditation signals that this facility is among the best in this specialty and is dedicated to delivering the highest level of care possible.”
Wellington Regional Medical Center is a 235-bed, acute care hospital serving the residents of Palm Beach County since 1986.
Established in 2003, SRC is an internationally recognized, nonprofit, patient safety organization dedicated to recognizing and refining surgical care.
SRC accredits the top hospitals, surgeons and health professionals worldwide that meet proven standards.
