Corazon Accreditation

The national leader in service line excellence offers Cardiovascular Accreditation

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.
