Columbia Eye Surgery Center Named “Best Ambulatory Surgery Center”

Columbia Eye Surgery Center has been named "Best Ambulatory Surgery Center" by U.S. News & World Report.

U.S. News & World Report, the global authority in hospital rankings and consumer advice, recently announced the “Best Ambulatory Surgery Centers” ratings of outpatient surgical centers. Among the 198 ambulatory surgery centers named across the country, Columbia Eye Surgery Center is one of only six ophthalmic ambulatory surgery centers named in South Carolina and the only named in the Midlands area.

Ambulatory surgery centers were evaluated based entirely on objective, risk-adjusted measures of their patients’ outcomes, including how successfully they avoided complications, ER visits, unplanned hospitalizations, and other undesirable outcomes. 

U.S. News awards the designation of “Best Ambulatory Surgery Centers” only to the highest-rated surgical centers that satisfy U.S. News’ statistical assessment of performance; fewer than 15% of evaluated facilities earned a “High Performing” rating.

U.S. News & World Report is the global leader in quality rankings that empower consumers, business leaders and policy officials to make better, more informed decisions about important issues affecting their lives and communities.
