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!

As we celebrate National Neurodiagnostic Professionals Week, I would like to offer special acknowledgement and thanks to all of our neurodiagnostic professionals for their contributions to Community Regional Medical Center. They are an instrumental part of our mission to ensure the health of our community, not only in their day-to-day practice, but through advocacy, education and research.

I read an article recently about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and how six million children have been diagnosed with this condition and one million of those six million have also been classified as having Sluggish Cognitive Tempo or SCT (two million children).They report lethargy, day dreaming, and slow mental processing.

So, the “free” annual physical came with a bill. I’d already provided the physician with a co-pay because we dealt with more medical matters than the physical. But because the physical included an EKG, and a previous EKG has indicated an aberration, this no longer was a preventive medicine but an ongoing follow-up of a recognized health matter.
