American College of Cardiology Lauds Bryan’s Electrophysiology and Cath Labs
The American College of Cardiology has recognized Bryan’s heart program for demonstrating expertise and commitment in treating patients. The electrophysiology lab and cardiac catheterization lab earned accreditation following a rigorous on-site evaluation.
“The accreditation process was truly a team effort and not only validated our wonderful care but also pointed out ways in which we can continue to improve the heart services our region has counted on for decades,” says cardiac and vascular services director Jennifer Preston, RN, MHA. “Accreditation in these two areas means we are keeping pace and providing excellent care for our patients.”
ACC Accreditation Services helps hospitals implement evidence-based guidelines, quality initiatives and best practices to improve cardio-vascular outcomes and reduce variations in care.
Phillip Levy, MD, chair of the ACC Accreditation Management Board, adds, “Bryan has demonstrated its commitment to providing Lincoln and surrounding communities with excellent heart care. ACC Accreditation Services is proud to award accreditation in these areas.” Dr. Levy says facilities that achieve accreditation meet or exceed stringent criteria and have organized a team of physicians, nurses, clinicians and administrative staff who earnestly support efforts leading to better patient education, improved patient outcomes and efficient disease control.
