It gives me a great deal of pleasure to announce two very important accreditations for Community Regional’s Echo Lab in our Non-Invasive Cardiology Department.

On April 9, we received news that the lab was granted a three-year term of accreditation in the areas of adult stress, adult transesophageal and adult transthoracic echocardiography by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC). And, just a few days later, the department was granted a three-year accreditation for pediatric transthoracic echocardiography and fetal echocardiography as well!
