Our commitment to clinical first has led us to:
SCA facilities optimize our patients’ experience. Our surgery centers and surgical hospitals offer patients easy scheduling, convenient access, short wait times, and billing transparency. Over 95% of our patients would recommend SCA’s facilities to a friend or colleague, and many patients specifically cite the distinctive friendliness and efficiency of our teammates.
SCA facilities seek to exceed nationally recognized standards by obtaining accreditation from The Joint Commission (TJC) or the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). We also work to meet Medicare’s quality reporting standards as determined by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
On average, our patients pay approximately 45% less than they would if they had the identical procedure performed at a hospital. These savings are reflected in patients’ co-pays and co-insurance. The lower cost of care in our facilities also helps lower total healthcare insurance premiums.
“Together with SCA, the success of Treasure Valley Hospital has been witnessed in many ways. In 2012, Treasure Valley Hospital was number one in the entire country for patient safety and satisfaction from hospital Medicare HCAHPS data.”
Dr. Jeff Hessing, Orthopedist, Treasure Valley Hospital in Boise, Idaho
