“Achieving accreditations from the SRC is a testament to our collective pursuit of the highest standards in patient care and safety,” said Adam Maycock, UChicago Medicine AdventHealth La Grange President and CEO. “We believe in staying at the forefront of what is possible in healthcare so that our community can get the highest quality care right in their own backyard. These accreditations are a reflection of our unwavering commitment to quality, continuous improvement, and, above all, ensuring the well-being of our patients.”

Status as an accredited Robotic Surgery center means that UChicago Medicine AdventHealth La Grange has met nationally and internationally recognized standards. Not all hospitals and surgeons seek accreditation; not all that undergo the rigorous inspection process are granted accreditation.

“We offer innovative state-of-the-art robotic surgery, and we have the skilled physicians and staff in place to deliver innovative care,” said Dr. Goliath. “Robotics allow us to perform surgeries in small spaces with small incisions. The recovery time is better. There is much less pain, infection rates are lower, hospital stays are shorter. Everything that we measure in surgery of value is simply better with robotic surgery. And this is just the tip of the iceberg of where I believe the technology is going to take us.”

Healthcare facilities and surgeons seeking SRC accreditation undergo an extensive assessment and inspection process to ensure the applicant meets SRC’s proven standards and requirements. These requirements include surgical volumes, facility equipment, clinical pathways, and standardized operating procedures, with an emphasis on patient education and continuous quality assessment. Inspectors educate staff in the accredited departments on best practices to help an organization improve its care and services.

“We’re proud to recognize UChicago Medicine AdventHealth La Grange and Dr. Goliath for their commitment to advancing and providing quality care for all patients,” said Gary M. Pratt, CEO of SRC. “These accreditations signal that this facility is among the best in this specialty and is dedicated to delivering the highest level of care possible.”
