McDowell Hospital’s Cardiopulmonary Laboratory received a three-year term of accreditation in the area of Adult Stress and Adult Transthoracic by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL).
This accreditation means that the McDowell Hospital Cardiopulmonary Lab has undergone a thorough review of its operational and technical components by a panel of experts – and is found to provide quality patient care, in compliance with national standards through a comprehensive application process.
As part of their mission to provide quality care to all, McDowell Hospital, a member of Mission Health , also updated their sleep lab services through a partnership with Mission Hospital’s Sleep Center. This partnership between hospitals means that patients can expect improved service delivery, improved outcomes, increased community outreach, improved communication among their health team and better care due to a more comprehensive and collaborative approach.
“Aligning our sleep lab with Mission’s Sleep Center is wonderful because it means great care for our patients and a great partnership within our health system. The Cardiopulmonary Department always looks for ways to implement quality care in everything we do and our sleep center changes and our accreditation are just two examples of these types of initiatives” said Sherri Miller, Director of Cardiopulmonary. “We are so happy that we received the three year accreditation from ICAEL and we are grateful that our affiliation with Mission Health allows us the support to provide the same type of quality care here in our own community that you can find at Mission.”
McDowell Hospital is a Joint Commission Accredited rural, community hospital, licensed for 65 beds. Established in 1908, McDowell Hospital has been providing health care services to our community for over 100 years.
