Chambersburg Hospital Echo Lab Renews Accreditation


CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL) granted Chambersburg Hospital accreditation in October 2013. This designation recognizes the hospital's echocardiography laboratory for its commitment to high quality patient care and testing.

According to Dr. Padma Hari, Medical Director for Chambersburg Hospital's Echocardiography Lab, echocardiography can help doctors detect life threatening heart disorders and other diseases.

Hari said the accreditation process is voluntary. Accreditation by the ICAEL means that Chambersburg Hospital's echocardiography program has undergone a thorough review by a panel of experts.

"We volunteer for this review to ensure that we are providing top quality care to our patients," Hari said.
