Denver, CO, January 19, 2019 –The American College of Cardiology recently has recognized Rose Medical Center for its demonstrated expertise and commitment in treating patients with chest pain, atrial fibrillation (AFib) as well as treating those who come to a cardiac cath lab for care, including diagnostic catheterizations and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures. The Rose Medical Center Cardiac Cath Lab is the only Cardiac Cath Lab in Colorado to receive the Cardiac Cath Lab PCI Accreditation.
The comprehensive Heart & Vascular Center at Rose Medical Center offers a wide range of cardiovascular conditions, staying at the cutting-edge of advancements in diagnostics and treatment. The American College of Cardiology performed rigorous onsite evaluations of the program, awarding the Chest Pain Center Accreditation with Primary PCI based on the staff’s ability to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients who may be experiencing a heart attack; awarding the Cardiac Cath Lab Accreditation with PCI based upon rigorous onsite evaluation of the staff’s ability to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients who come to the cardiac cath lab; and awarding Atrial Fibrillation with EPS Accreditation based on the staff’s ability to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients with atrial fibrillation.
“At Rose Medical Center, we are deeply committed to providing our cardiovascular patients with a full spectrum of excellent care” explains Rose Medical Center President & CEO Ryan Tobin. “That means our team is continually learning, researching and discovering new and better ways to provide care. We are proud that the American College of Cardiology again has recognized our dedication by awarding these accreditations.”
