Student Health Services achieves accreditation
Emory University Student Health Services has achieved its second three-year accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care. This national accreditation officially recognizes EUSHS for delivering quality health care services to student patients. EUSHS was found to be in full compliance with a series of several hundred rigorous, nationally-recognized standards, with no items requiring immediate correction.
“We believe that our voluntary participation in this nationally-recognized process ensures our continued ability to provide high-quality services to our students,” said EUSHS Executive Director Michael Huey.
EUSHS is one of only two nationally accredited college health services in the state of Georgia.
