SRC is the first credentialing organization to offer multispecialty “umbrella” accreditation options. These programs are ideal for hospitals that want to improve or showcase their complete surgical program, rather than just one service line. Multispecialty accreditations transcend surgical specialties and improve the quality of care for surgery departments versus just surgeons and teams within a single surgical specialty. They recognize a surgeon’s overall expertise, not specialty-specific expertise.
Marketing teams embrace the idea of multispecialty accreditations because hospitals and surgeons can be marketed across a number of specialties. From proper marketing alone, SRC’s designees can experience a return on investment faster than most other initiatives.
Designees in all programs will experience the benefits of an SRC Accreditation. Designees may choose whether they want to experience benefits across all surgical programs
(multispecialty accreditations) or if they want to focus solely on one surgical specialty (single-specialty accreditations). Some hospitals and surgeons will choose to achieve both single-specialty and multispecialty accreditations through SRC’s Center of Excellence (hospital+surgeon) and/or Master Surgeon (surgeon-only) accreditation models.
