In brief: Board Certification

Board certification is not attained by hospitals or health care organizations.
It is a process through which an individual physician or surgeon has voluntarily submitted to being examined by experts who then determine whether he has acquired the necessary knowledge base and exhibited sound judgement in his specialty. It is not a requirement to practice medicine or surgery in the U.S.
