Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center has been granted a three-year accreditation in echocardiography in the area of adult transthoracic by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission.

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

“This accreditation recognizes the high standard of service and expert level of care available in the echocardiography department at the Heart Center at Glendale Memorial Hospital,” said Daniel Goodwin, medical director of the hospital's echocardiography lab.

Accreditation by the commission means that Glendale Memorial Hospital has undergone a review of its operational and technical components by a panel of experts. The commission grants accreditation only to facilities found to be providing quality patient care in compliance with national standards through a comprehensive application process, including detailed case study review.
