Surgi-Care is accredited by the Community Health Accreditation Program

The Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP) is an independent, not-for-profit, accrediting body for community-based health care organizations, such as Surgi-Care. Created in 1965, CHAP was the first to recognize the need and value for accreditation in community-based care. CHAP is the oldest national, community-based accrediting body with more than 5,000 agencies currently accredited nationwide. Through "deeming authority" granted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), CHAP has the regulatory authority to survey agencies providing home health, hospice, and home medical equipment services,to determine if they meet the Medicare Conditions of Participation and CMS Quality Standards. CHAP's purpose is to define and advance the highest standards of community-based care.

Surgi-Care has been a CHAP accredited organization for over 10 years. CHAP accreditation demonstrates that Surgi-Care meets the industry's highest nationally recognized standards. Rigorous evaluation by CHAP focuses on structure and function, quality of services and products, human and financial resources, and long term viability. Through CHAP accreditation, Surgi-Care is also certified as a Medicare provider.

Surgi-Care is accredited by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics, and Pedorthics

The American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics, and Pedorthics has been accrediting O&P organizations since 1948. To attain ABC accreditation, all patient care facilities must comply with certain business requirements as well as the appropriate ABC patient care standards.

ABC standards create a minimum expectation for the physical environment and organizational function of orthotic, prosthetic and pedorthic patient care providers as well as suppliers of other types of medical equipment. Standards are grouped into categories and include topics such as organizational process, patient care, performance management, product safety, facility safety, and supplier compliance. Each of these categories contains a set of standards unique to the specific type of accreditation an organization is seeking.

Surgi-Care has been an ABC accredited facility since 2005.
