Parkview Regional Medical Center achieves accreditation as Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery

FORT WAYNE, IND. – Jan. 8, 2020 – Parkview Regional Medical Center (PRMC) has achieved accreditation as a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery by Surgical Review Corporation (SRC).

This accreditation distinguishes PRMC from other hospitals by providing the highest quality of care to patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation. Robot-assisted surgery is currently used at PRMC in several practice areas including urology, gynecology, colorectal, cardiothoracic and general surgery.

Status as an accredited Center of Excellence means that PRMC has met nationally recognized standards. Not all hospitals and surgeons seek accreditation; not all that undergo the rigorous on-site inspection process are granted accreditation.

“Robotic surgery adds value for patients and providers,” said Ben Miles, president, Parkview Regional Medical Center and Affiliates. “I’m proud of our entire surgical team for achieving this accreditation. It’s a testament to their world-class teamwork and pursuit of excellence.” 

“It is an honor to be recognized as a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery,” said Marcy Rogers, vice president, surgical practices, Parkview Health. “Parkview’s standards of care are evolving as we continue to incorporate advanced medical technologies into our practice. This accreditation will strengthen our community by enhancing the resources necessary to transform patient care.”

Health care organizations and surgeons seeking accreditation by SRC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site inspection. This process includes physicians, nurses and administrators who are actively involved in the accredited program. The inspection is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization or surgeon improve care and services.

“We’re proud to recognize Parkview Regional Medical Center as a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery for their commitment to advancing and providing quality care for all patients,” said Gary M. Pratt, CEO of SRC. “This accreditation signals that the facility and its surgeons are among the best in the specialty and are dedicated to delivering the highest level of care possible.”
