Butler, PA– August 10, 2021 – Butler Health System has continued
the distinction as an accredited Center of Excellence since 2018 by SRC.
Status as an accredited Center of Excellence means that Butler Health System
has met and continued nationally recognized standards. Not all hospitals
and surgeons seek accreditation; not all that undergo the rigorous inspection
process are granted accreditation.
In addition to Butler Health System being recognized as an accredited center
of excellence, Meng-g Lee MD, FACS, FASMBS has also been recognized as
Master Surgeon in Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery by SRC.
"It's a great honor to be recognized as a Master Surgeon, “said
Meng-g Lee, MD, FACS, FASMBS. “However, I could not have achieved
that without the support of our dedicated bariatric team. From our bariatric
coordinator Kelly Conti to our physician assistants and dietitians, these
medical professionals have devoted their life to the care of our patients
at Butler Memorial Hospital. As a team, we are committed to delivering
excellent care and the best patient outcome possible.”
Health care organizations and surgeons seeking accreditation by SRC undergo
an extensive self-assessment and inspection. This process includes physicians,
nurses and administrators who are actively involved in the accredited
program. The inspection is consultative and educational, presenting best
practices to help an organization or surgeon improve its care and services.
“We’re proud to recognize Butler Health System for their commitment
to advancing and providing quality care for all patients,” said
Gary M. Pratt, CEO of SRC. “This accreditation signals that this
hospital is among the best in this specialty and is dedicated to delivering
the highest level of care possible.”
