MountainView Hospital achieved accreditation from SRC as a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery. This accreditation recognizes MountainView’s commitment and high standard of delivery of quality patient care and safety.
Status as an accredited Center of Excellence means that MountainView has met nationally and internationally recognized standards. Not all hospitals and surgeons seek accreditation; not all that undergo the rigorous inspection process are granted accreditation.
Additionally, Dr. Lynn Kowalski, Robotics Medical Director, has achieved the Surgeon of Excellence in Robotic Surgery accreditation.
“Earning SRC's Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery accreditation signifies our ability to consistently to deliver safe and high-quality care to our patients,” said Hiral Patel, MountainView Hospital Chief Executive Officer. “This accreditation doesn't come easily, it is an acknowledgement of the focus our team has on exceeding clinical benchmarks and guidelines.”
MountainView Hospital has been the leader in robotic surgery since 2011, when the Las Vegas Institute for Robotic Surgery was launched. Since that time, the program has grown to the largest in southern Nevada, with six robots and is the pioneer for many advanced robotic procedures.
Health care facilities and surgeons seeking an SRC accreditation undergo an extensive assessment and inspection process to ensure the applicant meets SRC’s proven standards and requirements. These requirements include surgical volumes, facility equipment, clinical pathways and standardized operating procedures, an emphasis on patient education and continuous quality assessment. Inspectors educate staff in the accredited departments on best practices to help an organization improve its care and services.
“We’re proud to recognize MountainView Hospital for its commitment to advancing and providing quality care for all patients,” said Gary M. Pratt, CEO of SRC. “This accreditation signals that this facility is among the best in this specialty and is dedicated to delivering the highest level of care possible.”
