Bristol, PA, 10/28/2019 — Corazon, Inc., a national leader in services for the cardiovascular
specialty based in Pittsburgh, has granted accreditation to the PCI program
at Lower Bucks Hospital. Through a rigorous process, the accreditation
proves that the program at Lower Bucks Hospital has once again met or
exceeded the requirements established by the Pennsylvania Department of
Health (PA DOH), in accordance with the procedures finalized in September
of 2015, such as providing 24-hour coverage for PCI emergencies, undergoing
detailed quarterly quality reviews to ensure outcomes and practices meet
or exceed national standards, and other such factors.
Lower Bucks Hospital has demonstrated through their accreditation survey
that they are committed to providing the highest quality level of care
to their patient community. Their dedication, hard work, and exceptional
leadership has afforded this opportunity in engaging their entire hospital
team, enhancing their cardiac service line, thus allowing them to excel
through achieving this accreditation.

solutions for the heart, vascular, neuroscience, and orthopedic specialties.
The firm has worked with over 500 hospitals nationally to evaluate, re-engineer,
or implement best-practice PCI programs. Corazon is a long-time champion
for PCI with open heart surgery (OHS) off-site, and assisted with the
opening of the first PCI program of this type in Pennsylvania over 12
years ago. Corazon is also a State-Named Accrediting Body in the State
of Michigan, and has been a verifier for PCI programs in the state of
Georgia for several years and was instrumental in building a consortium
