Doctor’s Ambulance Service is 1 of only 148 ambulance services in the nation to receive accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services and one of only 14 in the State of California.
Accreditation by the Commission signifies that our service meets the "Gold Standard" as determined by the U.S. Ambulance Industry. The CAAS Board of Directors is represented by six national organizations including the American Ambulance Association, American College of Emergency Physicians, International Association of Fire Chiefs, National Association of EMS Physicians, National Association of EMS and the National Association of State EMS Directors. The Commission's standards often exceed those established by state or local regulation and are designed to help increase operational efficiency and decrease risk and liability across the entire spectrum of the EMS organization.
The accreditation process includes a comprehensive self-assessment and an independent external review of the EMS organization by CAAS representatives. Successful accreditation provides undisputed verification to local government officials, healthcare administrators and others in the community that the accredited agency is operating based on the highest quality standards established by the EMS industry.
“Our CAAS accreditation confirms our superior operation standards and our commitment to patients and the communities that we serve across Orange County”, states Michael Herren Doctor’s Ambulance Senior Vice President.
Doctor’s Ambulance Service has been accredited since 2004 and has received an unprecedented perfect score from the Commission in their initial review.
