Lowell General Hospital’s main and Saints campuses along with Merrimack Valley Cardiology located in North Chelmsford have been granted a three-year term of accreditation by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) in the area of Adult Transthoracic Echocardiography.
A special thank you to Medical Director Christopher Hong, MD and Technical Director Margaret (Marlie) Costa, RDMS for their efforts toward this achievement.
This is the team’s fourth designation! The accreditation demonstrates the facilities’ ongoing commitment to providing quality patient care in echocardiography. The Cardiologists and the Cardiac Sonographers have undergone an intensive application and review process and are found to be in compliance with the published standards thus demonstrating a commitment to quality patient care in echocardiography.
IAC accreditation is a seal of approval that patients can rely on as an indicator of consistent quality care and a dedication to continuous improvement.
