Mary Walker Health Center, the primary care center for SUNY Oswego students, earned three-year reaccreditation in May from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, according to Angela Brown, the new director of student health services for the college.
The reaccreditation effort was led by former director Elizabeth Burns, who recently retired after 32 years of service.
Accreditation signifies that the health center has met the AAAHC’s recognized national standards for quality health care, said Brown, who is a board-certified nurse practitioner. Among other measures, a representative of the organization made a day-and-a-half site visit during spring semester. The three-year duration of the reaccreditation means that the AAAHC found no issues that needed remediation.
