FORT MYERS – Local Ophthalmologist Jonathan M. Frantz, MD, FACS, is pleased to announce that the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. (AAAHC) has awarded Suncoast Surgery Center in Fort Myers a three-year term of accreditation. A state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center, Suncoast Surgery Center opened in 2000 as one of Florida Eye Health’s Centers of Excellence. It is fully licensed by both the State of Florida and the Agency for Health Care Administration (Medicare).
In a letter to Dr. Frantz, AAAHC’s Accreditation Committee said “The dedication and effort necessary for an organization to be accredited is substantial, and your organization is to be commended for this accomplishment.”
Suncoast Surgery Center was surveyed in July of this year by AAAHC, the leader in ambulatory health care accreditation with more than 2,800 organizations accredited nationwide. AAAHC is recognized as a symbol of quality by third party payers, medical organizations, liability insurance companies, state and federal agencies and the public.
“Everyone in our organization played a vital role in helping Suncoast Surgery Center meet the AAAHC standards,” explained Dr. Frantz. “Our team of experienced registered nurses, anesthesiologists, and support staff have been extremely supportive of this process,” he added.
Dr. Frantz performs no injection, no patch cataract surgery, CustomLens implants, and other ophthalmology procedures at Suncoast Surgery Center, which is located adjacent to Florida Eye Health’s main office at 12731 New Brittany Blvd., Fort Myers.
