Mercy Philadelphia Hospital Earns Echocardiography Accreditation

Mercy Philadelphia recently earned a three-year accreditation from the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) for its adult transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) program. TEE creates clear images of the heart for patients suffering from heart disease, a heart attack or a stroke, which helps cardiologists detect problems with the structure and function of the heart and its vessels. This accreditation recognizes hospitals whose TEE program documents quality patient care in the field of echocardiography.

"This extraordinary accomplishment reinforces our commitment to enhancing the quality of care we provide to our patients," said Eddy Mizrahi, MD, Medical Director of the Non-invasive Cardiovascular Lab at Mercy Philadelphia. "We are proud to earn this distinguished accreditation, and we thank our team of skilled cardiologists, nurses and technologists for their dedicated service to our community."

The heart care team at Mercy Philadelphia focuses on early diagnosis and treatment of heart problems, providing patients high-quality heart care using advanced techniques.

The IAC accredits imaging facilities and hospitals specific to echocardiography. IAC accreditation means Mercy Philadelphia has undergone an intensive application and review process and is found to follow published standards, demonstrating a commitment to quality patient care.
