TAMPA, FL (PRWEB) FEBRUARY 02, 2017 -- Florida Hospital Pepin Heart Institute has received accreditation for maintaining the highest standards of quality care from Accreditation for Cardiovascular Excellence™ (ACE™), an organization dedicated to ensuring adherence to high quality standards for cardiovascular and endovascular care. Florida Hospital Pepin Heart Institute received this prestigious designation in three areas: diagnostic cardiac catheterization, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and electrophysiology. The facility is the second in the United States to achieve accreditation in electrophysiology from ACE.

“These accreditations reinforce our commitment to providing quality cardiovascular care,” said Scott Strech, RN, BSN, MBA, Associate Vice President for Cardiovascular Services at Florida Hospital West Florida Division. “ACE accreditations are based on established gold standards and the quality of our outcomes, so patients can feel comfortable in knowing our Cardiac Cath and EP labs are providing the best possible care.”

ACE accreditation is a professional review of an organization’s structure, internal processes, patient safety practices, and clinical outcomes to determine if it meets the standards established by experts in cardiac and endovascular care. The ACE evaluation process involves an in-depth independent review of personnel, quality-assurance processes, facility equipment, and outcomes information. All data collected is measured against nationally accepted standards for the highest quality cardiovascular care. Facilities who undergo this voluntary and rigorous process demonstrate an exceptional commitment to providing the best possible care to patients.

“By seeking ACE accreditation, Florida Hospital Pepin Heart Institute has shown that it has an uncompromising commitment to provide safe, high quality care,” said ACE Chief Medical Officer Bonnie Weiner, MD. “The willingness to be evaluated against nationally accepted gold standard practices demonstrates a desire to meet the highest quality standards set by experts in cardiac and endovascular care.”
A cardiac catheterization lab is a specialized area that allows physicians to minimally invasively diagnose and treat numerous heart conditions. PCI is a type of cardiac catheterization procedure in which a balloon is inflated in a blocked coronary artery to increase blood flow to the heart. An electrophysiology lab allows physicians to diagnose and treat abnormal heart rhythms.
