GastroIntestinal Specialists receives two national accreditations

by BIZ Magazine

GastroIntestinal Specialists, A.M.C. (GIS) recently received separate accreditations from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) and the College of American Pathologists (CAP).

Shreveport Endoscopy Center, which is part of GastroIntestinal Specialists, was recognized by AAAHC for the high-quality care that it safely provides to its patients. The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care is considered the leader in ambulatory healthcare accreditation. Earlier this year, Shreveport Endoscopy Center was named to Newsweek’s list of “America’s Best Ambulatory Surgery Centers.”

GastroIntestinal Specialists has also received accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP) for its laboratory. A team from other accredited laboratories inspected the lab at GIS. To gain this accreditation, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality control of procedures for two previous years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program, record keeping and overall management. The College of American Pathologists is considered the gold standard in laboratory accreditation. To maintain accreditation, GIS will undergo an inspection every two years.

“These accreditations are important to us as they validate our desire and success in providing patients with the highest quality of care by our dedicated and professional staff,” said Adam Miller, clinic administrator.
