Reston, VA – Reston Hospital Center has recently renewed accreditation as a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG) by Surgical Review Corporation (SRC). This accreditation distinguishes Reston Hospital Center from many other surgical facilities by providing the highest quality of care to patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.
"We are proud of this achievement and our ongoing collaboration with our gynecologic surgeons,” said John Deardorff, president and CEO of Reston Hospital Center and HCA's Northern Virginia market. "This is another example of our ongoing efforts to ensure women in the Northern Virginia region have access to the best surgical care and latest advancements in minimally invasive surgical technology.”
Status as an accredited Center of Excellence means that Reston Hospital Center has met nationally recognized standards. Not all hospitals and surgeons seek accreditation, and of those that undergo the rigorous on-site inspection process, not all are granted accreditation.
Healthcare organizations and surgeons seeking accreditation by SRC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site inspection. This process includes physicians, nurses, and administrators who are actively involved in the accredited program. The inspection is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization or surgeon improve its care and services.
“As a Master Surgeon, operating in a hospital with Center Of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology Certification through the SRC, I am reassured that I not only have institutional support from Reston Hospital Center, but also a highly trained and knowledgeable team to work with me, equally as dedicated,” said Dr. Evelyn Felluca, practicing surgeon at Reston Hospital Center. “Together, we are able bring nationally recognized surgical care to women, close to home.”
