Corazon, Incorporated, a national leader in services for the cardiovascular specialty based in Pittsburgh, has granted accreditation to the PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention) program at Somerset Hospital.
Through a rigorous process, the accreditation proves that the program at Somerset Hospital’s Cardiac Catheterization Lab has met or exceeded the requirements established by the Pennsylvania Department of Health (PA DOH), in accordance with the procedures finalized in January 2014, such as providing 24-hour coverage for PCI emergencies, undergoing detailed quarterly quality reviews to ensure outcomes and practices are up to standard, and other such factors.
Corazon works with over 500 hospitals nationally to evaluate, re-engineer, or implement best-practice PCI programs. As an accrediting agency on behalf of the Pennsylvania Department of Health, Corazon helps ensure life-saving PCI services are provided in communities across the Commonwealth.
