Northeast Digestive Health Center, a Concord-based privately owned gastroenterology practice, has achieved accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). This accomplishment distinguishes Northeast Digestive from other facilities by providing the highest quality of care to its patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.
“Our dedicated staff works tirelessly to provide the best patient-centered care,” says Dr. David F. Rhodes, M.D., physician at Northeast Digestive for over 20 years.
This is the 12th year Northeast Digestive has been accredited. Status as an accredited organization means the organization has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAAHC.
“This is just another example of how we as an organization are succeeding, and we are humbled to receive this recognition,” added Chelsea Nazal, administrator, Northeast Digestive.
Those seeking accreditation by AAAHC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by AAAHC expert surveyors – physicians, nurses and administrators who are actively involved in ambulatory health care. The survey is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization improve its care and services.
