The National Association For Continence (NAFC) has reaccredited the University of Alabama at Birmingham's Continence and Urogynecology Care Clinics as a Center of Excellence for Continence Care.

UAB's Continence and Urogynecology Care Clinics were the first in the United States to be recognized as a Center of Excellence in 2010 by NAFC. The Center of Excellence designation was established to help consumers locating a reliable, trustworthy, experienced expert to manage bladder and bowel control problems as well as related pelvic floor dysfunction. To apply for this designation Health care institutions must meet prequalification requirements set by the NAFC and its Centers of Excellence Governance Board. The designation process is patient-centered and includes a patient satisfaction survey and an extensive site visit.

The Center of Excellence designation is based on evidence of extensive training, clinical experience, resources and patient satisfaction statistics that meet established standards.

"This reaccreditation further affirms that our Continence and Urogynecology Care Clinics strive to ensure quality care for patients every day," said William Andrews, Ph.D., M.D., professor and chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in UAB's School of Medicine. "It's an honor to have our physicians and staff recognized for their dedication to those they serve."
