Accreditation Program for Lithotripsy Organizations

The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. (AAAHC) and the American Lithotripsy Society (ALS) is pleased to announce the formation of the Accreditation Program for Lithotripsy Organizations (APLO) - a voluntary, joint accreditation program that combines an expertise of the society with the experience of a national accrediting organization - for those organizations offering lithotripsy services.

Under this new program, eligible organizations will be reviewed for compliance with AAAHC standards, as well as additional ALS requirements that address the unique components of lithotripsy services. Those organizations found to be substantially compliant with AAAHC and ALS standards will be awarded a combined AAAHC/ALS accreditation.

The following list of organizations have successfully achieved the APLO accreditation
