Unity Hospital's Cardiology Department Granted Accreditation by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL)

Unity Hospital's Cardiology Department was granted accreditation by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL) in the following areas: adult transthoracic, adult stress, and adult transesophageal echocardiography. The laboratory is one of the few hospitals in the greater Rochester area and one of the first one thousand echocardiography laboratories in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico to be so recognized for its commitment to high quality patient care and its provision of quality diagnostic testing. David Hsi, M.D., F.A.C.C., chief of Cardiology, stated "Our goal is to maintain the highest quality of all the echocardiographic studies while meeting the growing needs of our patients and clinicians."

The ICAEL was established with the support of the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE), the American College of Cardiology (ACC), and the Society of Pediatric Echocardiography (SOPE) to provide a peer review mechanism to encourage and recognize the provision of quality echocardiographic diagnostic evaluations by a process of voluntary accreditation. A non-profit organization, the ICAEL is dedicated to ensuring high quality patient care and to promoting health care.
