Bellava Unveils Its Joint-Commission Accredited Surgical Facility in Bedford Hills, NY

May 29, 2014

Considering cosmetic surgery? Then you should be considering the many benefits of having your procedure carried out in a Joint-Commission accredited surgical facility.

The Joint Commission National Quality Approval seal Bellava MedAesthetics and Plastic Surgery Center in Bedford Hills, NY

Bellava MedAesthetics & Plastic Surgery Center in Bedford Hills, NY, recently achieved the Gold Seal from the Joint-Commission for Accredited Health Care Organizations (JCAHO)What this means to you as the patient is the reassurance that we have met or exceeded rigorous standards for patient safety, HIPPA and OSHA compliance, qualified staff members and excellent patient care outcomes.

“The accredited OR signifies that we have clearly raised the bar on what we can offer our patients at Bellava,” said board-certified plastic surgeon, James R. Lyons, MD, Bellava’s medical director. “For one, it allows us to extend the capacity of the procedures that we offered previously with local anesthesia–such as SlimLipo laser liposuction, the “Weekend” facelift, upper lid blepharoplasty, tip rhinoplasty and breast lifts since we can now perform these procedures in patients who DO NOT wish to be awake.”

What is the Joint Commission?

Founded in 1951, the Joint Commission is the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care. To earn and maintain the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™, an organization must undergo an on-site survey by a Joint Commission survey team at least every three years.

With full accreditation, Bellava’s standards of safety are now on the same level as freestanding medical centers and short-term surgical centers in hospitals.

Benefits include:

  • Complete privacy
  • State-of-the-art equipment and care
  • No exposure to nosocomial (hospital-acquired) infectious agents
  • Convenient, hassle-free scheduling
  • Luxury, spa-like waiting and recovery rooms
