About Us

Accreditation

Student Health Services (SHS) has been accredited by AAAHC since March 2011. Accreditation is a voluntary process through which the quality of our services and performance is measured against nationally recognized standards. The accreditation process involves a self-assessment by the organization followed by a thorough on-site review by an AAAHC expert surveyor. For more information on AAAHC, please visit their web site.

What does accreditation mean for you? By going to an accredited health clinic, you get an assurance that the quality of care and services you're going to receive meet the strictest standards. Accreditation surveyors review all of our care, policies, processes, and facilities and provide feedback to ensure that we provide you with the highest quality of care.
