Team members at VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital are celebrating four wins in different areas of patient care including ultrasound, breast ultrasound, echocardiography and pulmonary rehabilitation.

VCU Health CMH has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in ultrasound and breast ultrasound as the result of an extensive review by the American College of Radiology. Ultrasound imaging, also known as sonography, uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of internal body parts to help providers diagnose illness, injury or other medical problems. The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR practice parameters and technical standards, following a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. 

The Intersocietal Accreditation Commission granted CMH a three-year term of accreditation in echocardiography. This equipment is used to assess different areas of the heart and can detect heart disease or signs of serious conditions. This latest award demonstrates the hospital’s ongoing commitment to providing quality patient care. The echo lab was part of an elite group of labs that were recognized with an additional Bronze Award for achieving 20 continuous years of echo lab accreditation.  

The American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation certified CMH’s pulmonary rehabilitation program a three-year term for their commitment to improving the quality of life for patients by enhancing standards of care. Pulmonary rehabilitation programs are designed to help people with lung and respiratory problems recover faster and live healthier. The program includes exercise, education, counseling and support for patients and their families.
