Shadyside Surgi-Center – A Better Choice for Cosmetic Change
Since 1994, the Shadyside Surgi-Center has been a unique and promising addition to the health care delivery network in our community. The center is dedicated to the cost-effective delivery of cosmetic and minor surgical procedures that are not expected to entail an overnight hospitalization for successful outcome. It is licensed by the State of Pennsylvania and is certified as a supplier of ambulatory surgical services by virtually all insurers, including Medicare and Highmark.
The facility is designed to focus the attention of the health care team on the individual patient, one case at a time.
Patients can now enjoy the privacy and personal care of an office surgical facility; not in an unlicensed doctor’s office, but rather in a carefully inspected and regulated facility designed to meet the same exact safety standards of any hospital in the State of Pennsylvania. Care is personal and private, not institutional. Comfortable and Safe.
Shadyside Surgi-Center has been accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF).
The AAAASF is the largest accrediting organization of its kind in the United States and its accreditation is recognized as the “gold standard” in ambulatory surgical care. All AAAASF-accredited facilities must meet stringent requirements that ensure the highest level of safety, quality, and efficiency, in the outpatient surgery environment.
Like hospital operating rooms, and unlike unlicensed office operating rooms, the Shadyside Surgi-Center operating theater is equipped with a precision air filtration and ventilation system that provides twenty-five (25) filtered air exchanges per hour, only a fraction of the air being recirculated. There is a natural gas-driven backup electrical generator that ensures an uninterrupted source of power for the surgery center through any power outage. All equipment is maintained and routinely inspected by specialists in biomedical engineering. Quality assurance and infection control plans are fully operational. Safety comes first.
Shadyside Surgi-Center does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, ancestry, age, gender, religious creed, sexual preference, handicap, disability, or any other distinguishing feature in regards to patients, employees, and care providers. No person shall be excluded from participation, be denied benefits of, or otherwise be subject to discrimination in the provision of any care or service.
