Largo Medical Center has been awarded an echocardiography accreditation by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) for a three-year term in the areas of Adult Transthoracic. Echocardiography, also referred to as an echo or heart ultrasound test, is an exam that takes moving pictures of one’s heart.
“Largo Medical Center is dedicated to early detection of life threatening heart disorders through the use of echocardiography,” said Anthony Degina, CEO, Largo Medical Center. “It’s accreditations like this that underscore our commitment to quality and compassionate patient care and service.”
This accreditation means Largo Medical Center has undergone a thorough review of its operational and technical components by a panel of experts. The IAC grants this accreditation to those facilities found to be providing a high standard of care, in compliance with national standards, through a comprehensive application process including detailed case study review. IAC accreditation is the “seal of approval” patients can rely on as an indication Largo Medical Center has been carefully critiqued on all aspects of its operations considered relevant by medical experts in the field of echocardiography.
