The Center offers advanced laser technology and is staffed by board-certified anesthesiologists.
Not only is the Plastic Surgery Center at Kierland licensed by the Arizona State Department of Health, The Surgery Center has also been awarded the Certificate of Accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Healthcare, Incorporated (AAAHC). This award means that The Plastic Surgery Center at Kierland has met nationally recognized standards for quality healthcare set by an internationally recognized accrediting organization.
In order to achieve AAAHC accreditation, The Plastic Surgery Center at Kierland underwent an extensive onsite survey of its facilities and services. The survey team, composed of physicians and healthcare administrators, evaluated all aspects of patient care. The survey findings resulted in a favorable decision.
Not all ambulatory healthcare organizations seek accreditation and not all of them that undergo an onsite survey see favorable decisions. In a letter to The Plastic Surgery Center at Kierland, the AAAHC President said:
“The dedication and effort necessary to achieve accreditation is substantial. The Plastic Surgery Center at Kierland is to be commended for this accomplishment.”
“We are pleased and proud to have achieved this accreditation,” said Dr. Caniglia. “We think accreditation is very important and has helped us to improve the quality of care we provide. We feel that our patients are the ultimate benefactors from our participation in the accreditation program. Cosmetic surgery procedures are at an all time high, making proper credentials and accreditation of paramount importance.”
