St. Peter’s Vascular Associates, a practice of St. Peter’s Health Partners Medical Associates, has been granted a three-year term of accreditation in vascular testing by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC).
Accreditation by the IAC means that St. Peter’s Vascular Associates has undergone an intensive application and review process and found to have met rigorous standards in the area of vascular testing. It is a ‘seal of approval’ that patients can rely on as an indicator of accuracy, consistent quality care, and a dedication to continuous improvement.
“Achieving excellent results requires an accurate diagnosis. This is not possible without a team of dedicated, highly-skilled medical professionals,” said Yaron Sternbach, M.D., chief of vascular services at St. Peter’s Hospital. “Our team of registered vascular technologists work extremely hard to ensure our patients receive the best care and outcomes possible.”
Cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death in the United States. On average, one American dies every 39 seconds of cardiovascular disease – disorders of the heart and blood vessels. Stroke, a disorder of the blood supply to the brain, is the third leading cause of death and the leading cause of disability in the country, with nearly 800,000 new strokes occurring every year. Vascular testing procedures, like those performed at St. Peter’s Vascular Associates, enable physicians to detect these life-threatening conditions earlier, saving lives.
