CenExel JBR Earns AAAASF Accreditation

Jul 9, 2020 | Press Releases

Salt Lake City, Jul. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The JBR Clinical Research surgical center emphasizes its dedication to safety and quality with the receipt of accreditation from the not-for-profit American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). JBR Clinical Research, a CenExel Center of Excellence, has earned this industry gold standard after a thorough evaluation of commitment to patient safety, quality level, fiscal responsibility, and many other criteria.

AAAASF requires 100 percent compliance with accreditation standards, and each accreditation recipient is re-evaluated through a self-survey annually, with an on-site survey conducted every three years. JBR Clinical Research earned the impressive endorsement after AAAASF’s board-certified medical specialist inspected the facility with a 130-page checklist and found no deficiencies. Facility surveyors are trained to follow a regimented agenda to analyze the general environment, operating and recovery room environments (including relevant policies and procedures), general safety, blood and medications, medical records, quality assessment and quality improvement, personnel, and anesthesia.

The surgical center at JBR Clinical Research has been accredited as a Class A Ambulatory Surgical Center, which can provide the highest forms of anesthesia and, in this case, perform the following variety of outpatient surgeries.

  • General surgery
  • Orthopedics
  • Plastic Surgery
  • Podiatry
  • Urology

“While surgical suite accreditation is generally not a requirement for clinical research sites in most locales, we felt strongly that this was a critical endeavor to ensure the safety of our subjects and the confidence of our sponsors,” said Dr. Todd Bertoch, JBR’s Chief Medical Officer and Principal Investigator. “This accreditation is simply one more in a long list of reasons why sponsors, CROs, and subjects alike can rest assured that they will receive the highest possible quality of care at JBR Clinical Research.” Dr. Bertoch also serves as Chair on CenExel’s Analgesic Advisory Board.

The staff at JBR Clinical Research are proud to be listed among the roughly 2,500 AAAASF-accredited institutions worldwide, and JBR employees are devoted to maintaining their responsibilities to patients. To add context to this prestigious accreditation, there are well over 9,000 ambulatory surgery facilities in the United States alone.
