Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus Receives Re-accreditation for Echocardiography Services

05/11/2017

Lakewood, N.J. – Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus (MMCSC), an RWJBarnabas Health facility, has earned re-accreditation by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC), a widely respected accreditation program, in the areas of Adult Transthoracic and Adult Transesophegeal echocardiography. The three-year term of accreditation demonstrates MMCSC’s ongoing commitment to providing quality patient care in echocardiography.

One of the most commonly utilized diagnostic tests in cardiology, echocardiography is used to assess the condition of the heart, heart valves and surrounding blood vessels. It can help detect heart disease or signs of serious conditions by providing physicians with real-time images of the heart structure and information on its functioning.

Accreditation by the IAC validates that MMCSC has successfully completed an intensive application and review process and was found to be in compliance with IAC Standards and Guidelines for Echocardiography Accreditation. Comprised of a detailed self-evaluation followed by a thorough review by a panel of medical experts, the IAC accreditation process enables both the critical operational and technical components of the applicant facility to be assessed, including representative case studies and their corresponding final reports. For patients, the accreditation serves as a “seal of approval,” ensuring MMCSC’s consistent quality care and dedication to continuous improvement.
