Pomerene Hospital’s Cardiovascular department has been granted a three-year term of accreditation in the areas of cardiac and vascular testing by the Intersocietal
Accreditation Commission (IAC).
Accreditation by the IAC means that Pomerene’s Cardiovascular department has undergone a voluntary and thorough review of its operational and technical components by a panel of experts. The IAC grants accreditation only to those facilities that are found to be providing quality patient care, in compliance with national standards through a comprehensive application process including detailed case study review.
IAC accreditation is a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an indication that the facility has been carefully critiqued on all aspects of its operations considered relevant by medical experts in the fields of cardiac and vascular testing.
Alex Nicolozakes, MD is Pomerene’s in-house Cardiologist. “This accreditation really speaks volumes. We have an excellent cardiovascular staff who make
it their top priority to provide high-quality care in each and every encounter,” stated Nicolozakes. “I’m so proud of everyone involved here at Pomerene
in achieving this accreditation.”
Early detection of life threatening heart and vascular disorders and other diseases is possible through the use of cardiovascular procedures performed within hospitals, outpatient centers and physicians’ offices. While these tests are helpful, there are many facets that contribute to an accurate diagnosis based on testing. The skill of the sonographer performing the examination, the type of equipment used, the background and knowledge of the interpreting physician and quality assurance measures are each critical to quality patient testing.
