Our Surgical Facility

Strand Surgical Center is a fully-accredited ambulatory surgical facility founded by Dr. James Pearson to serve our patients in a safe, private, comfortable and convenient environment.

Our surgical team members have been personally selected by Dr. Pearson for their high level of skill, safety and patient satisfaction.

Strand Surgical Center is accredited by Quad A, the nation’s premier accrediting association for ambulatory surgical facilities.

A Quad A-accredited facility must comply with the most stringent set of applicable standards available in the nation and meet strict requirements. Quad A provides official recognition to facilities that have met 100% of its high standards. Accreditation assures the public that patient safety is the top priority in a facility.

Why does Accreditation Matter ?

The American Board of Facial Plastic Surgery requires members to operate out of facilities that are routinely monitored for safety and quality. Unfortunately, there are many facilities that surgeons are operating from that are not accredited and monitored. Dr. Pearson is board-certified and our operating facility has the highest level of accreditation as an outpatient surgical center.

Finding out if your surgery center is accredited is simple. Visit JCAHO, AAAHC, or QUADA for more information, or to find an accredited surgery center near you. Here are the top reasons why accreditation matters:

  • Physician's certifications are routinely checked, making sure all doctors operating in the facility are currently licensed.
  • An accredited facility will monitor and report incidents of infections, complications, and other concerns related to patient safety to the medical board and health department.
  • Quality management ensures the best patient care standards are met, from equipment, sanitation, and staffing.
  • Patient care and treatment plans are reviewed and updated regularly, making them current with updated standards.
  • Supplies, drug, and medication expiration dates are checked and made current.
  • Surgeons serve as peer review monitors for each other, ensuring quality of care.
  • Anesthesia standards are clearly set, and always administered by a licensed anesthetist.
  • Accredited ambulatory facilities are shown to have very low rates of serious complications and low mortality rates.
