Echocardiography receives re-accreditation

February 07, 2024 

HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital has been granted a three-year term of accreditation by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) in Adult Transesophageal and Transthoracic Echocardiography. This latest accreditation awarded to St. Mary’s Hospital demonstrates the facility’s ongoing commitment to providing quality patient care in echocardiography.

“Our echo team assists our physicians from Prairie Cardiovascular to diagnose and treat various cardiac conditions,” said Dr. Vinil Bhuma, chief medical officer at St. Mary’s Hospital. “This re-accreditation ensures their hard work and continued respect for our patients does not go unnoticed as St. Mary’s continues its modernization.”

Accreditation by the IAC means that St. Mary’s Hospital has undergone an intensive application and review process and is found to be in compliance with the published standards, demonstrating a commitment to quality patient care in echocardiography. 

Comprised of a detailed self-evaluation, representative case studies and final reports followed by a thorough review by a panel of medical experts, the IAC accreditation process enables assessment of both the critical operational and technical components of each applicant facility.
