June 10, 2015 - USA Student Health Center Celebrates Accomplishment
Article

Kellen 1.jpgThe University of South Alabama Student Health Center recently was granted a 3-year re-accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). A luncheon was held on May 21, 2015, to recognize the important milestone in the continuing growth and success of the Student Health Center and to recognize the Student Health Center team for their role in the process.

This surveyor's site visit report indicated that out of 610 standards, the USA Student Health Center met or exceeded compliance in all but four of these standards, with a perfect score on overall chapter compliance level.

“I am very proud of all my staff and everyone that had a role in this accomplishment because it is a rigorous on-site survey that not all student health centers across the country can achieve,” said Beverly Kellen, practice director. Achieving this goal distinguishes the USA Student Health Center as one of only two student health centers in the state to  maintain accreditation by AAAHC, and USA joins a select group of 188 schools accredited by AAAHC in the United States.
