Swedes’ specialists earn top heart accreditation

Staff Report

Swedish American Hospital’s Midwest Heart Specialists were recently granted an advanced accreditation recognizing their efforts to combat cardiovascular disease.

Swedes’ specialists were granted a three-year term of accreditation in echocardiography (adult transthoracic) by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC).

This accreditation shows that Midwest Heart Specialists’ operational and technical components have undergone a thorough review by a panel of experts,” said Swedes in a statement. 

Swedes, a division of the University of Wisconsin Health system, says that one American dies every 39 seconds of cardiovascular disease.

Early detection of life-threatening heart disorders and other diseases is possible through the use of echocardiography procedures,” the medical group said.

IAC accreditation is a ‘seal of approval’ that patients can rely on as an indication that the facility has been carefully critiqued on all aspects of operations considered relevant by medical experts in the field of echocardiography.”
