After working with hundreds of cardiovascular programs across the country for nearly 20 years, Corazon knows the necessary components for an efficient, effective, and high-quality cardiovascular program. Beginning in states that require accreditation in order to offer angioplasty (PCI) with off-site open heart surgery (OHS) support, our model also fits the needs of any cardiovascular program in any state with or without regulations. Corazon's unique value comes from a consultative and collaborative approach that supports clients' efforts toward achieving this important distinction for market leadership and/or a competitive advantage. Our proven model has helped dozens of programs with achieving clinical, operational, and financial goals for their service line.

It was extremely helpful to have the assistance of the seasoned team from Corazon. They knew the PA regulations and were actually instrumental in assisting the DOH with the development of the guidelines, which was an added bonus of working with them. Corazon provided the A-Z of all of our needs, helping to establish the types of committees needed to ensure employees throughout the hospital had a say in the program, which allowed our team to become engaged in the program and thus instrumental to its success. Corazon also provided education, examples of policies and procedures, and sound advice for navigating through some politically delicate issues unique to our program. When starting a new program, quality is of utmost importance. As an organization, we decided to have an outside reviewer of all PCI cases, which Corazon provided via peer review. This unbiased viewpoint assisted us in improving our program right from the beginning. We have a very strong program and passed our recertification in the year, far exceeding the volumes we predicted. Though our predictions were conservative, we still reached our 300th PCI just ahead of our first anniversary.
We are extremely satisfied with every aspect of our cath lab accreditation project with Corazon. From the prep, to meeting our quick timeline, to the site visit for review, we couldn't be happier with the results. The entire project was completed quickly and thoroughly, and now our community has evidence of the high quality cardiac care we provide at McLaren Greater Lansing. Corazon's accreditation is a 5-Star service!
Working through the accreditation process has been a pivotal part of our continued development of best practices for our catheterization lab. With Corazon, we gain invaluable insight into cardiology as a whole, including the labs. They provide specific understanding of cath labs with off-site surgical programs, and this information is vital to us as we continually strive to improve outcomes and performance goals. Corazon offers detailed education plans to help our team better interpret data, and assistance with implementing action plans moving forward. Uniontown Hospital has worked with Corazon for more than 15 years, and through this partnership, our cardiology department has continued to grow and flourish into one of the most accredited and successful in the state. We are quite thankful for this continued relationship, and look forward to working with them for years to come.
Evangelical Community Hospital has seen marked improvements relative to outcomes. Corazon provides an extra layer of quality assurance that is essential in the success of any cardiac catheterization program. Through the support from Corazon and our medical director, Evangelical Community Hospital has not only achieved, but consistently maintained, positive outcomes. Even with these positive results, Corazon also provides identification of areas for improvement according to the top benchmarks across the nation. With early recognition and timely implementation of change, Evangelical has seen our outcomes steadily soar. With Corazon as our accrediting body, we have a "safety net" for our quality program.
Our experience with Corazon Accreditation has exceeded our expectations here at Garden City Hospital. The support we received leading up to the visit was incredibly helpful; in fact, the overall process has helped us improve our program in the best of ways, with the consultants there every step of the way. From interacting with our team, to collaborating with our physicians, to providing feedback to our executive team, we feel Corazon’s feedback and accreditation will elevate care in many ways. We're excited to have Corazon's Seal of Accreditation on our cardiovascular program and think they represent how the accreditation process should be.
