The Vascular Center at the Regional Medical Center has earned reaccreditation in vascular testing demonstrating an ongoing commitment to the early and accurate diagnosis of potentially life-threatening vascular diseases.

“Vascular disease can result in serious and even life-threatening conditions, including stroke and cardiovascular disease. Expert diagnosis is essential to the successful treatment of these conditions. By participating in this voluntary accreditation process, we ensure our team is performing at the highest possible level,” said Vascular Center Medical Director Julius W. Babb III, MD, FACS.

The Vascular Center has been granted an additional three-year term of accreditation by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) in several areas of vascular testing. IAC accreditation serves as a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an indicator of consistent quality care and a dedication to continuous improvement.

Accreditation involves an intensive application and review process, including a detailed self-evaluation followed by a thorough review by a panel of medical experts. RMC earned accreditation in the areas of Extracranial Cerebrovascular Testing, Peripheral Venous Testing and Peripheral Arterial Testing.

The Vascular Center at RMC is an outpatient facility designed to identify circulation problems. Registered vascular sonographers perform a wide range of vascular studies including evaluations of the carotid arteries, circulation of the arteries and veins of the legs and arms, and renal artery studies.
