Broward Health Medical Center Accredited a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery

Fort Lauderdale, Florida -- Broward Health Medical Center has achieved accreditation as a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery. The hospital has been recognized for providing the highest quality of care by Surgical Review Corporation (SRC).

Broward Health Medical Center met nationally and internationally recognized standards by meeting requirements proven to enhance outcomes and reduce the time patients spend in the hospital. This resulting accreditation distinguishes Broward Health Medical Center from many other surgical facilities by providing the highest quality of care to patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.

“We are extremely honored to be recognized as a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery,” said Heather Havericak, CEO of Broward Health Medical Center/Salah Foundation Children’s Hospital. “Our hospital’s mission is to provide advanced, high-quality surgical care and optimal patient outcomes. We applaud our top surgeons who are dedicated to creating and sustaining this culture of excellence in robotics.”

The following Broward Health Medical Center surgeons were also accredited by SRC for Excellence in Robotic Surgery:
• Vladislav Gorbatiy, M.D., Urology
• Ralph Guarneri, M.D., General/Trauma Surgery
• Ronald E. Moore, M.D., Bariatric Surgery/General Surgery
• Delisa Skeete-Henry, M.D., Obstetrics/Gynecology

Health care organizations and surgeons seeking accreditation by SRC undergo an extensive self-assessment and site 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 Broward Health Medical Center 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.”
