We appreciate your selection of Tallahassee Single Day Surgery Center
for your outpatient surgical care. We are a free-standing multi-specialty
ambulatory surgical center and have been serving the outpatient surgery
needs of Leon and neighboring county residents since 1978. The staff
serving you is professionally trained to provide the highest quality
care at the lowest possible cost.
Our efforts to give you the best possible care have received the seal
of approval from the premier accrediting body in heath care today. We
are accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare
Organizations. Our accreditation means that we voluntarily asked to
be evaluated by an outside, independent organization of healthcare professionals
for compliance with national standards set by the American College of
Physicians, the American College of Surgeons, the American Dental Association,
the American Hospital Association, and the American Medical Association.
Those standards represent the best thinking about quality in health
care in our country. Our accreditation means that we have been evaluated
for compliance with those standards and have met them.
Our surgery center is staffed by highly qualified, experienced, well
educated personnel whom are committed to quality patient care and also
in assisting you with your particular surgery needs. In a seemingly
impersonal computerized era, human skill and a caring spirit are still
the basis of good medical care. We offer you both. If you have any questions,
please ask any member of our staff.
