What are the requirements of SRC accreditation?

To achieve accreditation, providers undergo a rigorous, unbiased inspection to ensure they meet nationally and internationally recognized standards of excellence. Unlike some accreditation programs, SRC is not part of a medical society that uses its members to evaluate colleagues. The inspection evaluates treatment pathways and consultative services, equipment used for treatment, patient education and support groups available.

What sets SRC-accredited providers apart?

Many accreditation programs accredit only the facility. SRC is unique in accrediting not only the facility where procedures are performed, but the individual providing the treatment: the doctor. SRC accreditation distinguishes Bellin Health and the accredited providers from those without accreditation by advancing patient care team leaders in improving care quality and adopting proven clinical approaches to drive best-in-class surgical care.

What does SRC’s gold seal of accreditation mean for patients?

Patients can trust SRC’s gold seal to identify health care providers who deliver excellence in patient safety and care. The requirements for accreditation programs have been proven to improve outcomes and reduce the time patients spend in the hospital. Look for the seal, expect excellence.
