The 95th Medical Group underwent an Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care survey and Health Services Inspection. Every three years, civilian surveyors from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care and military inspectors from the Air Force Inspection Agency come to Edwards to evaluate and improve the quality of health care delivered to the Edwards community. The group received a three-year reaccreditation, and an overall "excellent" rating.

Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Car accreditation means that the organization participates in on-going self evaluation, peer review and education to continuously improve its care and services. The organization also commits to a thorough, on-site survey by Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Car surveyors, who are themselves health care professionals, at least every three years.
