A Social Media Toolkit for Accredited/Certified Facilities

Congratulations on your facility’s achievement of receiving an ACC Accreditation, Certification or HeartCARE Center designation! Celebrate your achievement and communicate it on social media to spread awareness about your dedication to providing high-quality cardiovascular care. Review this guide for sample social media messages and check out additional ACC social media resources at the end!

Tips for Promoting Your Facilities Accreditation on Social Media 
We encourage you to tag ACC’s social media accounts and use the hashtags #ACCAccreditation on Twitter (@ACCinTouch), LinkedIn and Facebook to spread the word about your facility’s dedication to continuous quality improvement and participation in the ACC Accreditation Services. 

Be sure to use the hashtags and/or mention ACC’s account so ACC social media staff can like and/or reshare you post.

  • Twitter (@ACCinTouch): #ACCAccreditation 
  • LinkedIn: @American College of Cardiology; #ACCAccreditation
  • Facebook: @AmericanCollegeofCardiology; #ACCAccreditation


Be sure to include the following in your social media posts:
  • The Accreditation or Certification your facility is receiving (i.e., Cardiac Cath Lab Accreditation, Chest Pain Center Accreditation, Electrophysiology Accreditation, Heart Failure Accreditation, Transcatheter Valve Certification or HeartCARE Center designation) 
  • Hashtags: Include #ACCAccreditation and relevant clinical hashtags. See relevant clinical hashtags for each Accreditation Services service line.)
  • Tag the ACC: Be sure to tag the ACC’s social media accounts. (Use @ACCinTouch for Twitter, @American College of Cardiology for LinkedIn and @AmericanCollegeofCardiology for Facebook.)

Instructions about downloading both your accreditation/certification seals and ready-made social media graphics are provided in the award notification email and are also included with your certificate of achievement and display case award. You might also take images of your CV team working together to include with a social media post, if it meets your facility’s guidelines.
