FMC's Vascular Lab Receives IAC Accreditation

Vascular testing procedures provide early detection of life-threatening heart disorders, stroke and other diseases. This winter, the Fairfield Medical Center Vascular Lab was granted a three-year term of accreditation in vascular testing by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission. This accreditation covers extracranial cerebrovascular testing, peripheral venous arterial and vascular testing.

The IAC only grants this accreditation to facilities found to be providing quality patient care in compliance with national standards. IAC accreditation is a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an indication that the facility has been carefully critiqued on all operational aspects in the field of vascular testing.

Vascular Surgery AwardIn 2012, FMC opened a dedicated vascular ultrasound laboratory to better meet the needs of patients with potential vascular conditions. The lab uses non-invasive ultrasound to look at veins and arteries to determine if a vascular condition exists. Services provided range from diagnostic vascular exams to advanced treatments of vascular conditions in areas such as the legs, neck, abdomen and kidneys.
