Ambulatory Surgery/Endoscopy Suite
With colorectal cancer the second leading cause of cancer death in New York City, it's no small wonder that more and more medical institutions are responding accordingly by investing in their facilities. More individuals are aware of the need to have a colonoscopy. The need to meet this increased demand led Staten Island Physician Practice to expand its services by creating an ENDOSCOPY SUITE at our 1050 Clove Road location and then pursue accreditation.
To earn our accrediation, SIPP, like every ASF accredited ambulatory surgery facility, must meet stringent national standards for general environment, general safety, blood and medication, medical records, quality assessment/improvement, personnel, governance, operating room, recovery room, and anesthesia. The end result is that the accredited facility makes a commitment toward maintaining safety and quality in the ambulatory surgery facility. As the leading accrediting organization for ambulatory facilities, ASF has developed the systems to effectively monitor and implement the latest advances in outpatient care delivery that directly benefits patients.
The Board of Directors would like to thank our dedicated physicians and staff for making this a reality.
