What is accreditation?

Intermountain Vein Center has always been focused on holding ourselves to a high standard of care. As an office we decided it was an extremely important step to obtain our accreditation. Being an accredited facility we would not only hold ourselves to high standards; but we would be giving an assurance to our patients, referring doctors, and insurance providers that we have the care and the safety of the patient forefront in our mind.

A national committee of experts reviewed not only submitted protocols and practices, but also performed on site visits to make sure we were providing safe and quality care to our patients.

By achieving accreditation for Intermountain Vein Center we believe it will empower patients, our office, referring physicians, and insurance providers to advance the practice and the science of treating varicose veins.

As changes occur in medicine, always look for the accreditation seal to ensure you are being taken care of in a facility with the highest level of expertise.
