Taylor Hospital’s Echocardiography Laboratory was recently granted accreditation in the areas of Transthoracic and Adult Transesophogeal Echocardiography by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL).

“This accreditation recognizes our commitment to quality testing for the diagnosis of heart disease,” says Aymen Alrez, M.D., medical director of the Echocardiography Laboratory at Taylor Hospital. “Because cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, it is imperative that we offer the best possible testing to our patients. With this accreditation, our echocardiographic testing services can be useful in the detection and management of many types of heart disease.”

Taylor’s laboratory is one of the first 1,000 echocardiography laboratories in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico to be recognized for its commitment to high-quality patient care and quality diagnostic testing. 

“I would like to commend the staff for demonstrating the high quality of care and dedication we have to our patients,” says Trudy Mazzone, administrative director of Diagnostic Imaging and Cardiopulmonary Services at Taylor Hospital. “This accreditation is just another way to signify that Taylor Hospital and Crozer-Keystone Health System are on the cutting-edge of services and technology.”

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 healthcare.
