The Stony Brook University Student Health Service (SBUSHS) is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), which recognizes a long-standing commitment to providing the highest levels of quality care to the community we serve, and the same high level of conduct in our business practices.
Status as an accredited organization means that SBUSHS participates in on-going self evaluation, peer review and education to continuously improve its care and services, and has passed a series of rigorous and nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care, set by the AAAHC. Over 2,300 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States have achieved accreditation by the AAAHC, and they undergo an extensive on-site, peer-based survey of its facilities and services at least every three years.
Our accreditation status provides an extra measure of confidence to our students. We are proud to have met the challenge of accreditation, and intend to consistently uphold the principles of quality improvement and quality care in the future.
