Stamford Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) has received a 2018 National APEX Quality Award for Excellence in Healthcare.

“ONS is honored to receive the 2018 National Apex Quality Award because it reflects our practice-wide commitment to the highest standards of quality care and patient satisfaction,” said Seth Miller, MD, a founding partner at ONS.

This national distinction recognizes outstanding healthcare providers who have demonstrated excellence in patient satisfaction and overall care during the previous calendar year, according to a statement from SPH Analytics, the national healthcare analytics firm behind the awards.

Apex winners represent the top 10% of SPH clients with the highest satisfaction scores for measures tied directly to care and are based solely on patient feedback and evidence-based success.

For eligibility, a minimum of 300 patient surveys from each SPH client were collected and analyzed from January 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018. In all, more than 633 healthcare facilities in the United States were eligible for the award; 96 were selected as winners.  The Stamford ASC was one of only three facilities selected from the state of Connecticut.

“We applaud all recipients of this year’s award for their exceptional impact in driving satisfaction for their patients,” said Amy Amick, President and CEO of SPH Analytics.
