Moffitt Health Center, a full service primary care clinic at The University of Southern Mississippi, has achieved reaccreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
Accreditation distinguishes this primary care facility from many other outpatient facilities by providing the highest quality of care to its patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation. Status as an accredited organization means Moffitt Health Center has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAAHC.
