Gold Coast Staff with Dr. Verma
Dr. Verma performs shoulder replacement surgery at the Gold Coast Surgicenter, Chicago’s Premier same-day surgical center. The Gold Coast Surgicenter is one of two ambulatory surgery centers in the United States recognized as a Center of Excellence in Advanced Orthopedic Certification for Total Joints by the AAAHC (Accredited Association of Ambulatory Health Care). Dr. Verma is pleased to utilize this distinguished facility for shoulder replacement procedures.
“We believe our patients deserve the best,” stated Nikhil Verma, MD, Chairman of Gold Coast Surgicenter. “When you see our certificate of accreditation, you will know that AAAHC, an independent, not-for-profit organization, has closely examined our facility and procedures. It means we as an organization care enough about our patients to strive for the highest level of care possible.”
Ambulatory health care organizations seeking accreditation by AAAHC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by AAAHC expert surveyors – physicians, nurses, and administrators who are actively involved in ambulatory health care. The survey is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization improve its care and services.
“Going through the process challenged us to find better ways to serve our patients, and it is a constant reminder that our responsibility is to strive to continuously improve the quality of care we provide,” said Nikhil Verma, MD.
Gold Coast Surgicenter is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Chicago at the historic Water Tower Place. For over 20 years the Gold Coast Surgicenter care team has been a leader in providing primary and ambulatory health care to patients in and around Chicago.
