Marketing Your Achievement

Telling your community about your accomplishments is a great way to communicate the value you place on excellent patient care. The work you've completed is important and deserves recognition. Praise for your quality improvement efforts can take many forms and may be acknowledged across the duration of your engagement with the American College of Cardiology. There's a lot to be gained by sharing your success with your internal and external audiences.

Building good relationships with your communities of interest may include hosting health fairs and other educational events. To that end, you may purchase giveaways that tout the recognition you've received from ACC through our online store.

Most importantly, we invite you to learn more about some of the specific ways that you can increase awareness by employing some fundamental marketing tactics and techniques.

Learn more about Marketing Your Achievement

Those facilities that have earned an ACC accreditation or certification will receive a certificate of achievement that can be displayed to honor the team that earned recognition from the American College of Cardiology. Accredited facilities also have the right to proudly showcase the accreditation and certification seals they've earned. We invite the facilities that we work with to learn more about how to market an earned accreditation.

Please note: Only those hospitals and facilities that are currently accredited or certified by ACC are entitled to display our seals and to announce their accreditation/certification status. To obtain the appropriate accreditation graphics for your ACC accreditation designation, please contact customercare@acc.org. We encourage and ask all earning an accreditation or certification to review and become familiar with our ACC Accreditation Services Marketing Policy.
