Ohio Valley Surgical Hospital Recently Achieved SRC’s Center of Excellence in Kidney Stones

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio, March 2024 Ohio Valley Surgical Hospital recently achieved accreditation from SRC as a Center of Excellence in Kidney Stones. This accreditation recognizes OVSH’s commitment and high standard of delivery of quality patient care and safety.

Status as an accredited Center of Excellence means that OVSH has met nationally and internationally recognized standards. Not all hospitals and surgeons seek accreditation; not all that undergo the rigorous inspection process are granted accreditation.

“Our team is proud to have received accreditation as a kidney stone Center of Excellence. Our commitment to providing the best patient care supports our mission to ELEVATE THE STANDARD OF HEALTHCARE IN OUR COMMUNITY. This accreditation reinforces the confidence our patients have in Ohio Valley, to provide care they can trust during their experience with us,” says Mendy Williams, CNO, Ohio Valley Surgical Hospital.

Health care facilities and surgeons seeking an SRC accreditation undergo an extensive assessment and inspection process to ensure 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 Ohio Valley 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.”
