Highland Earns Endoscopy Recognition
The Highland Procedures Center has been redesignated as a center for quality and safety by the ASGE (American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy). The ASGE Endoscopy Unit Recognition Program honors units that have demonstrated a commitment to delivering quality and safety as reflected in their unit policies, credentialing, staff training, competency assessment, and quality improvement activities. Now more than ever, it is critical that endoscopy units demonstrate their effectiveness in the delivery of high-quality, safe patient care.
The nationally recognized ASGE Quality Star has been granted to stand-alone ambulatory endoscopy centers, hospital-based endoscopy units, and office-based endoscopy units that have met the program's rigorous criteria. This unit recognition informs patients, referring physicians, and surveyors about their commitment to the highest standards of quality care.
