We had a great experience with HCI. The consultant was professional, personable, and knowledgeable. We would recommend HCI to other organizations looking to be well prepared for a AAAHC audit.

Kelly Roper, MHA, CEO; Orthopaedic Associates, P.A.
We have used Healthcare Consultants on two occasions; once when we opened our ASC and then again when we had a change in administration. They exceeded our expectations on both occasions. Their consultants are extremely knowledgeable and come armed with the most recent information. Our consultant answered all of our questions and broke the steps down to a process that was easy to understand and implement. HCI Consultants is recommended for all healthcare accreditation needs.
Scherrie Eastwood, General Manager; Marion Eye Surgery Center
HCI met our needs and exceeded our expectations. At the end of the day, we need to move fast in today’s healthcare environment and with HCI, we accomplished our goals.
Scott R. Anderson, COO; Prairie Spine & Pain Institute
Utilizing the services offered by Healthcare Consultants International was a wise investment for our center. In addition to providing recommendations on our current systems, they provided a “mock” survey as well. After implementing some of these recommendations, our AAAHC survey went very smoothly and we were complimented on how well prepared our facility was.
Ruth Van Orden, RN, Quality Assurance Coordinator; Surgery Center of Lancaster
HCI’s consultant was very professional and knowledgeable about the accreditation process. Her observations in the clinical setting were very helpful and constructive. She spent a great deal of time reviewing policies and procedures and provided an excellent overview of accreditation requirements. We especially appreciated her assistance with the credentialing and privileging process. The consultant’s attention to our needs made this a satisfying experience.
