Countdown to Accreditation

Our Goals

KPHC will be seeking to become accredited with AAAHC in early 2020. You will see a countdown clock in the lobby for when KPHC will be applying for their accreditation survey.

What is AAAHC?

AAAHC, or the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc., is a private, non-profit organization formed in 1979 to assist ambulatory health care organizations in improving the quality of care provided to patients. As we move forward, they will help us as we establish, review, and revise standards, measures performance, and provide consultation and education.

What is accreditation?

Accreditation is an external, independent review of a health care delivery organization against nationally accepted standards and its own policies, procedures, processes and outcomes. In other words: is the organization delivering safe, high-quality patient care in the way that it says it will?

AAAHC accreditation means that the organization participates in on-going self-evaluation, peer review and education to continuously improve its care and services. The organization also commits to a thorough, on-site survey by AAAHC surveyors, who are themselves health care professionals, at least every three years.

What to expect

As KPHC moves forward with their goal of being accredited, you will start to notice new and different processes come to light to help us deliver safe and high-quality care. If you have any questions about these new processes and our AAAHC goals and accreditation, please feel free to contact any of our staff members and they will be happy to assist you.

The Santo Domingo Health Center Expansion project will add 37,170 square feet of space attached to the current facility. Upon completion of this project, the total square footage for the Health Center will be 57,631. The expansion project will focus on critical health services being provided as well as staff requirements who currently have outgrown their space. Specifically Primary Care, Pharmacy, Behavioral Health, and Lab services have increased significantly over the years mainly from having a qualified and stable panel of professional providers.

The project’s estimated cost is $11.5 million and is projected to break ground in the fall of this year. The construction will take approximately one year to complete sometime in the fall of 2019.

The expansion will support the mission and vision of KPHC while adding sufficient space for the delivery of specialty services currently being referred out. By providing these services in-house, KPHC will address health care disparities affecting the Native American population.

New services will include imaging and physical therapy as well as areas specific for women’s health, and pediatrics.

Imaging services generally referred are basic x-ray, mammography, CT and MRI. This expansion will assist KPHC in providing on-site x-ray services and planning for future CT and MRI services. This will allow our providers to get results back and provide timely treatment to our patients.

Physical Therapy (PT)/ Occupational Therapy (OT) specialty services are in high demand due to our active and aging population. Our current facility provides basic Physical Therapy services as well as some in-home therapy. KPHC plans to expand services, appointment availability and increase access to care.

Women’s Health services are currently being provided by our primary care providers. KPHC plans to expand our services internally and externally. Our current providers were recruited with experience in women’s health to increase services such as regular check-ups, mammography, colposcopy and maternal health.
