Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center Earns Accreditation for Carotid Artery Stenting

Dec 15, 2014

Hospital is one of only four in the U.S. to receive two ACE accreditations

Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. (Dec. 15, 2014) – Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is proud to be awarded full accreditation for Carotid Artery Stenting (CAS) by the Accreditation for Cardiovascular Excellence (ACE), an independent, physician-led organization. ACE is dedicated to ensuring adherence to the highest quality standards for cardiovascular and endovascular care.

Earlier this year, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center was also awarded accreditation for Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) and Cardiac Catheterization. The two accreditations make the hospital one of only four health care providers nationwide to receive both honors.


Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center earned the accreditation by meeting national standards in post-procedure care and by meeting or exceeding the patient outcomes at comparable facilities that follow medical best practices. The CAS accreditation applies to a procedure that widens narrowed portions of a patient’s neck arteries to improve or restore blood flow to the brain. A hospital with CAS accreditation means it has demonstrated an exceptional commitment to providing the best possible care to patients.

The ACE evaluation process involves an in-depth independent review of personnel, quality assurance processes, facility equipment and outcomes information. All data collected is measured against nationally accepted standards for the highest quality cardiovascular care.

The Heart & Vascular Institute at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center has delivered advanced cardiac care for more than three decades and is nationally recognized for treating patients with cardiovascular conditions.
