CHI Memorial Receives ACE Accreditation for Cardiac Catheterization

01/11/17 News Article

CHI Memorial, Chattanooga, TN, has received accreditation for cardiac catheterization from Accreditation for Cardiovascular Excellence™ (ACE), an organization dedicated to ensuring adherence to the highest quality standards for cardiovascular and endovascular care. ACE™ accreditation is a professional review of an organization’s structure, internal processes, patient safety practices, and clinical outcomes to determine if it meets the standards established by experts in cardiac and endovascular care. Only 44 programs in the United States are ACE accredited for cardiac catheterization.

ACE measures a facility’s practices, personnel, processes and outcomes against nationally-accepted best-practice standards. ACE’s outcomes-based accreditation promotes uniform benchmarks and improves appropriate utilization via an independent, third-party evaluation of facilities and practices.

The ACE evaluation process involves an in-depth, independent review of personnel, quality-assurance processes, facility equipment and outcomes information. All data collected is measured against nationally-accepted standards for the highest-quality cardiovascular care.

Facilities that complete this voluntary and rigorous process demonstrate an exceptional commitment to providing the best possible care to patients.
