OSSI COE- Designation Awarded to the Surgeon and Hospital
Truly excellent patient care is the result of both the individual surgeon and the hospital at which the surgery is performed. The OSSI designation is therefore awarded together to the surgeon and their hospital, which enables patients to distinguish providers who have met the requirements from delivering high-quality perioperative and long-term follow-up care from those who do not.
