The surgery center was one of four ASCs recognized by the board for exemplifying “best practices in the surgery center industry.”
CASA evaluated the commitment and involvement of surgery centers across the state in five different pillars: membership, advocacy, quality metrics, education and community involvement. Surgery Center of South Bay is heavily engaged in advocacy and encourages physicians and staff to support the industry through legislative writing. South Bay also acts as a surgery center for the county of Los Angeles and serves as an ASC rep for the county’s Disaster Coalition Advisory Committee.
All four honorees were recognized during the annual CASA business meeting in September. Center Administrator Juliana Adelechanow accepted the award on the center’s behalf.
