Fort Worth, TX – Medical City Fort Worth has been reaccredited in echocardiography within the areas of Adult Transesophageal and Adult Transthoracic by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC). The accreditation demonstrates the hospital's ongoing commitment to providing quality patient care in echocardiography.

Echocardiography is used to assess different areas of the heart and can detect heart disease or signs of serious conditions. There are many factors that contribute to an accurate diagnosis based on echocardiography including the training and experience of the sonographer, type of equipment used and quality assessment metrics put in place by the facility.

"Medical City Fort Worth is committed to providing accurate diagnoses and leading edge treatments for patients with cardiovascular disease," said Jyric Sims, CEO, Medical City Fort Worth. "This reaccreditation demonstrates that we have the appropriate resources, expert staff and comprehensive training in place to ensure that our patients receive excellent care in every action, every time."

Accreditation by the IAC means that Medical City Fort Worth Echo Lab has undergone an intensive application and thorough review by a panel of medical experts and complies with the published standards. The IAC accreditation process enables both the critical operational and technical components of the applicant facility to be assessed, including representative case studies and corresponding final reports.
