The Toledo Clinic Urgent Care System Receives National Accreditation

(Toledo):  The Toledo Clinic Urgent Care System has received formal certification from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc (AAAHC).  They are the first privately owned urgent care system in Ohio to be recognized by AAAHC, the oldest ambulatory care authorizing organization in the United States. 
 
AAAHC is the leader in developing standards to advance and promote patient safety, quality care, and value for ambulatory healthcare through peer-based accreditation processes, education, and research.  There are currently 6,000 organizations which AAAHC has accredited. 
 
Similar to other sanctioning bodies, like JCAHO, accreditation is granted after an extensive on-site survey by peers from other parts of the United States.  In August, AAAHC surveyors measured The Toledo Clinic Urgent Care System against pre-established standards reflecting the highest and best practices in the field today.  In total, the process took six months. 
 
Urgent care centers are playing an increasingly important role in the delivery of healthcare around the United States and in this community.  According to the Urgent Care Association of America, the number of urgent care centers jumped from 6,707 in 2015 to 7,357 in 2016—a 9.7% increase. 
 
“Our strategic priorities at The Toledo Clinic are quality, value and access,” said Moshir Jacob, a primary care physician at The Toledo Clinic.  “This accreditation provides our patients with assurances from a national organization that our urgent care facilities support all three of these priorities.” 
 
The Toledo Clinic Urgent Care Centers are located at 6819 Springvalley Dr. in Holland, OH, and at 201 E. High Street in Bryan, OH. 
 
The Toledo Clinic currently has over 270 independent physicians and associated healthcare professionals practicing in almost 40 medical and surgical specialties. The Toledo Clinic has a main campus located at 4235 Secor Road in Toledo, as well as satellite offices serving patients over the entire Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan regions. The Toledo Clinic’s Secor Road location consists of three buildings that include on-site ancillary services such as an imaging center, pharmacy, laboratory/pathology and physical therapy along with a state-of-the-art, newly remodeled outpatient surgery center.
