UI Hospitals and Clinics Recognized for Heart Care

A University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics lab that specializes in echocardiograph testing for heart disorders has received a three-year reaccreditation from an independent national organization.

The Echocardiography Laboratories in the UI Heart and Vascular Center received reaccreditation from the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL) for adult transthoracic, adult transesophageal and adult stress testing.

ICAEL requires that facilities meet demanding criteria for accreditation, which goes to only the highest-quality echocardiography labs. To learn more, visit ICAEL.
