DANVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) -Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center recently achieved accreditation as a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery by Surgical Review Corporation.
This accreditation distinguishes Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center from many other surgical facilities by providing the highest quality of care to patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation, according to the medical center.
Status as an accredited Center of Excellence means that Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center along with Dr. David Montgomery and Dr. George Munday have met nationally recognized standards.
Not all hospitals and surgeons seek accreditation; not all that undergo the rigorous on-site inspection process are granted accreditation.
“This recognition further acknowledges our commitment to providing the highest level of health care to our patients,” said Dan McKay, President and CEO, Ephraim McDowell Health.
Healthcare organizations and surgeons seeking accreditation by SRC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site inspection. This process includes physicians, nurses and administrators who are actively involved in the accredited program.
The inspection is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization or surgeon improve its care and services.
