Adonis Cosmetic Surgery & Spa Awarded

Certification from The Joint Commission

Adonis Is The First Cosmetic Surgery Center In Southern Colorado To Earn Accreditation

After undergoing a voluntary, on-site evaluation and demonstrating compliance with nationally developed standards, Adonis Cosmetic Surgery & Spa has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ for certification in an Office Based Surgery Practice in November, 2010. Adonis Cosmetic Surgery & Spa is the first cosmetic surgery center in Southern Colorado to earn this accreditation.


Adonis Cosmetic Surgery & Spa pursued this voluntary process to demonstrate their commitment to provide high quality care in a safe office environment. “I truly believe this is the way to ensure that we are safely conducting our patient care and that our patients can be reassured of the level of quality care they receive at our facility,” explains Dr. Rina Shinn, Medical Director and Founder of Adonis Cosmetic Surgery & Spa.


The staff at Adonis Cosmetic Surgery & Spa has been actively preparing for this initial survey, sometimes working 15-hour days, since the end of June. This was an intense effort to meet more than 150 standards and create a 600-page policy and procedure manual while undergoing related inservices and safety training. They will be resurveyed and re-accredited every three years.


“It was at times exhausting, but immensely rewarding process for me as well as for my staff . We’re proud to achieve this distinction from The Joint Commission,” shares Dr. Shinn.
