Accredited Echocardiogram Services
In 2016, Our Echocardiography laboratory at Lawrence Location has successfully been accredited by Corhealth Ontario, a support system to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care that is dedicated to improving quality in the delivery of adult cardiac services in Ontario. We are proud to have met the challenge of accreditation, and intend to consistently uphold the principles of quality improvement and cardiac care in the future.
