The Heart Center Receives Accreditations for Quality, Care and Outcomes

The Heart Center at Nationwide Children’s is the first pediatric catheterization laboratory in the United States to be accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) as a Cardiovascular Catheterization Accreditation Program. This program recognizes facilities that perform cardiovascular catheterization procedures while meeting quality benchmarks based on published clinical guidelines, best practices and outcomes. Nationwide Children’s catheterization laboratory has been awarded two IAC facility accreditations in both Complex Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) and Pediatric Cardiovascular Catheterization.

In addition, Nationwide Children’s was recently designated an Accredited Center of Care by the Children’s Cardiomyopathy Foundation (CCF). The program recognizes The Heart Center’s high-quality cardiac care and specialized disease management of children with cardiomyopathy. Center accreditation is based on self-reported hospital data, which is evaluated on the volume of pediatric cardiomyopathy patients, variety of pediatric patient services offered, expertise in the treatment and management of cardiomyopathy in children, and affiliation with an academic research institution.
