Vascular Center at UM Shore Regional Health Receives National Accreditation

University of Maryland Shore Regional Health’s noninvasive vascular laboratories have received accreditation by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) in the areas of extracranial cerebrovascular testing, peripheral venous testing and peripheral arterial testing.

IAC accreditation is a nationally recognized seal of approval that patients can rely on as an indication that a noninvasive vascular laboratory has been carefully critiqued by a panel of medical experts. As part of the accreditation process, UM Shore Regional Health’s Vascular Center laboratories at UM Shore Medical Centers at Dorchester and Easton underwent a thorough review of their operational and technical components.

According to Gary Jones, regional director of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Services for UM Shore Regional Health, “IAC is a nationally recognized vascular center industry standard. This achievement reflects our team’s attention to detail and commitment to superior patient care.”

“Vascular testing is essential to effective treatment, and our patients should expect and know that our vascular labs work to the highest standards. I’m proud of our entire team for the quality work they do and for this deserved recognition,” said Charles DiNapoli, MD, medical director of UM Shore Regional Health’s Vascular Center.

Early detection of life-threatening heart disorders, stroke and other diseases is possible through the use of vascular testing procedures like those performed by UM Shore Regional Health.

Physicians may refer patients to UM Shore Regional Health Vascular Center after gathering the patient’s medical history and assessing risk factors and symptoms. Procedures can be scheduled by calling the Vascular Center office at 410-822-1000, ext. 5809.
