WVU Medicine Berkeley Medical Center receives echocardiography re-accreditation

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — WVU Medicine Berkeley Medical Center’s cardiovascular lab has been granted an additional three-year accreditation in echocardiography in the area of adult transthoracic by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission.

According to the IAC, this most recent accreditation demonstrates the facility’s ongoing commitment to providing quality patient care in echocardiography.

Early detection of life-threatening heart disorders and other diseases is possible through the use of echocardiography procedures performed within hospitals, outpatient centers and physicians’ offices. While these tests are helpful, there are many facets that contribute to an accurate diagnosis based on echocardiography testing.

The IAC grants accreditation to facilities that are found to be providing quality patient care, in compliance with national standards through a comprehensive application process that includes detailed case study review.
