Vincent J. Perrotta, MD, President of the Center for Aesthetic Surgery has announced that the Center has achieved accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC / Accreditation Association). The Center for Aesthetic Surgery is one of only five accredited facilities on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and the only accredited facility dedicated to plastic and cosmetic surgery.

“Accreditation underscores our long-standing commitment to providing the highest possible levels of quality care to the communities we serve”, said Dr. Perrotta. “We are pleased and proud to have our efforts recognized with this accreditation.”

Status as an accredited organization means The Center for Aesthetic Surgery has passed a series of rigorous and nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care, set by the Accreditation Association. Over 2,600 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States are accredited by the AAAHC.

Roy Grekin, MD, Accreditation Association President commented, “Achieving accreditation demands a high level of dedication and effort. Dr. Perrotta and the Center for Aesthetic Surgery are to be commended for this accomplishment.”

Ambulatory health care organizations seeking accreditation by the AAAHC undergo an extensive on-site, peer-based survey of its facilities and services. Not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation; not all undergoing the on-site survey are granted accreditation.

Among the types of ambulatory health care organizations that can seek AAAHC accreditation are ambulatory and office-based surgery centers, single and multi-specialty group practices, college health centers, dental group practices, community health centers, occupational health centers and managed care organizations.

The Center for Aesthetic Surgery is dedicated to the patients of Peninsula Plastic Surgery. Its mission is to provide comprehensive cosmetic surgical care in an atmosphere of privacy, comfort and excellence. For the convenience of the patients of Peninsula Plastic Surgery, the Center for Aesthetic Surgery is attached to the Salisbury office located at 314 W. Carroll Street.
