We hope you will take advantage of the information and suggestions on this web site and on ACC.org, so that you, too, can join us and advocate for the early assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of heart disease.
Two Powerful and Prestigious Keys to Visibility
Participation in ACC's quality improvement programs garners your facility important visibility on ACC's popular CardioSmart website. Visit the Find Your Heart a Home tool to search for accredited facilities by name. The search tool also notes all of the cardiovascular services provided by a hospital and those NCDR data registries in which a facility participates.
> FAQ about how Accredited facilities can manage the display of their ACC Accreditation/Certification details on Find Your Heart a Home.
In addition, earning an ACC Accreditation emphasizes the priority your facility places on patient care and nets each accredited facility inclusion in ACC's "Heart of Quality Patient Care" insert in the annual USNWR Best Hospitals guidebook. The 2021 guidebook is an important reference point used by consumers interested in the capabilities and competencies of hospitals in their area.

Created by Dr. Raymond Bahr, MD, FACC, the program asks all individuals to be prepared to act quickly should they witness a recognizable heart emergency. By taking the EHAC Pledge, you become ‘deputized’ to save lives.
Here you will find a wide variety of links to both ACC resources and to other websites that may be of interest to cardiovascular healthcare professionals.
