St. Dominic Hospital Named
Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery

 Jackson, MSApril 16, 2019 – St. Dominic Hospital has achieved accreditation as a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery by Surgical Review Corporation. A Center of Excellence accreditation distinguishes St. Dominic’s from many other facilities by providing the highest quality of care to its patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.

Status as an accredited organization means St. Dominic Hospital has met inter-nationally recognized standards. Not all health care organizations seek accreditation, and not all that undergo the rigorous on-site inspection process are granted accreditation.

“We are very excited to have earned accreditation as a Multiple Specialty Robot Center of Excellence for the state of Mississippi. “This accreditation helps confirm our commitment to providing the highest quality of care possible for the patients we serve. We are proud to have our robotics program recognized by SRC, and we look forward to our partnership with them as we continue our journey of excellence in care,” said David Henry, VP Clinical Operations, St. Dominic Hospital.

Health care organizations seeking accreditation by SRC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site inspection. This process includes physicians, nurses, and administrators, working as a collaborative team, who are actively involved in the accrediting process. The inspection is based on specialized skill and training of the medical staff that is provided throughout the patient stay from the original consult until the patient is discharged from the physician’s office. It places focus on best practices and standardization of care throughout the patient care cycle.
