Weigel Health Center Reaccredited
From the Vice President for Student Affairs
I am pleased to announce that Weigel Health Center has been awarded a third three-year term of accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). The association serves as an advocate for the provision of high-quality health care through the development of nationally recognized standards and through its accreditation programs.
Granting accreditation reflects the review team’s confidence that our health center meets, and will continue to demonstrate throughout the accreditation term, the attributes of an accreditable organization as reflected in the standards found in the Accreditation Handbook for Ambulatory Health Care. The dedication and effort necessary for an organization to be accredited is substantial, and our compliance with those standards demonstrates a commitment to self-evaluation and continuous improvement.
Weigel Health Center has found the accreditation review to be helpful with identifying both strengths and opportunities to improve. The reaccreditation process ensures an independent review of the center’s operation, thereby providing guidance for future changes that will benefit the students who are served.
Angie Price, interim director, and all health center staff members are to be commended for their effort and dedication in realizing this impressive accomplishment.
