UnityPoint Health - Allen Hospital has been designated a Minimally Invasive Gynecology Center of Excellence by the AAGL (American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists) and Surgical Review Corporation.
The COEMIG program recognizes surgeons and facilities that demonstrate an unparalleled commitment and ability to consistently deliver safe, effective, evidence-based care. The program is structured to help minimally invasive gynecologic surgery providers continuously improve care quality and patient safety.
To achieve this recognition we created and implemented clinical & surgical pathways as well as standard orders for our Laparoscopic and Hysteroscopic procedures. Our clinical pathways cover many areas such as intraoperative anesthesia, perioperative care, counseling of patients, and fluid management. We also require a full complement of consultative services for our patients which include Vascular & General Surgeons, Urologist, Radiologist, Gynecologist, Anesthesiologist, and a Critical Care Specialist.
