Milford Regional Earns AABB Accreditation

The accreditation bestowed by the AABB (formerly known as the American Association of Blood Banks) follows an intensive on-site assessment by specially trained AABB assessors and establishes that the level of technical and administrative performance within the facility meets or exceeds the standards set by AABB. Milford Regional now joins similar facilities located throughout the United States and the world that have AABB accreditation.

“The AABB’s accreditation procedures are voluntary and Milford Regional has sought AABB accreditation because this program assists facilities around the world in achieving excellence by promoting a level of professional and technical expertise that contributes to quality performance and patient safety,” says Edward J. Kelly, president and CEO of Milford Regional.

The AABB is an international not-for-profit association dedicated to the advancement of science and the practice of transfusion medicine and related biological therapies. The accreditation program assesses the quality and operational systems in place within a facility. The basis for assessment is compliance with AABB standards, Code of Federal Regulations and other federal guidance documents.
