Vascular Labs Earn Accreditation
The facilities are used for the early detection of cardiovascular disease
The vascular laboratories at Moses Cone Hospital, Wesley Long Hospital and Cone Cardiovascular Imaging at Northline have earned accreditation from the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC). The labs are used in the early detection of cardiovascular disease and stroke—major causes of death and disability in this area. The labs earned accreditation in vascular testing in the areas of extracranial cerebrovascular testing, peripheral arterial testing and peripheral venous testing.
“The best cardiovascular care in the world is only as good as the testing it is based on. That’s why we submit our labs to rigorous outside testing. Providing the best care to our patients demands it,” says Cone Health Heart & Vascular Center and Imaging Services Vice President Rich Lundy.
The vascular laboratories at Moses Cone and Wesley Long Hospitals underwent a thorough review of 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.
