Founded in 2015, Gateway Pediatric Surgery Center specializes in the surgical treatment of children. Our facility is in a newly renovated building with top-of-the-line equipment and ORs to best serve our patients and staff. We’re an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) that has been accredited by the AAAHC. What does that mean?

The AAAHC (Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care) is a strict organization that only provides accreditation to ASCs that meet their high standards. The AAAHC is “the leader in developing standards to advance and promote patient safety, quality care, and value for ambulatory health care through peer-based accreditation processes, education, and research. A certificate of accreditation is awarded to organizations that are found to be in compliance with AAAHC Standards.”
