Local Prosthetics Practice earns Medicare Facility Accreditation in Unprecedented – 5 Specialty Categories: Facial, Somatic, Ocular, Breast and Limb Prosthetics
Medical Art Prosthetics has successfully completed a rigorous process to earn Medicare accreditation from the Board for Certification/Accreditation (BOC).
Facility accreditation is awarded when a facility has successfully demonstrated its compliance to standards set by the Centers for Medicare/Medicaid Services (CMS) and BOC. Facility accreditation shows a supplier’s focus on providing quality patient care.
“We’re honored and proud to have earned accreditation through BOC,” says Greg Gion “The accreditation process has helped us to serve our patients better.”
“We feel confident that Medical Art Prosthetics is always striving to be the best in facial and hand prosthetics. I couldn’t be happier with the work Greg completed for me. My life is better because of his talent.” ~Debbie (patient)
In no other healthcare field do the benefits of specialization become more graphically apparent than in the field of facial prosthetic restoration. In 2005 Gregory G. Gion, MMS, CCA, BOCP founder and owner of Medical Art Prosthetics, LLC opened The Medical Art Prosthetics Clinic for the Midwest in Madison, Wisconsin.
“The goal of facility accreditation is to demonstrate a facility’s ability to provide patients with quality care,” notes Claudia Zacharias, President & CEO of BOC, located in Owings Mills, Maryland. “With the American population spanning five generations, we are seeing an increased need for the types of products and services Medical Art Prosthetics offers.”
