Accreditations and Awards
Pima Heart has demonstrated excellence and has received recognition in the form of the following awards and accreditations:
Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care
AAAHC accreditation means that the Pima Heart and Vascular participates in on-going self evaluation, peer review and education to continuously improve its care and services. We also commit to a thorough, on-site survey by AAAHC surveyors, who are themselves health care professionals, at least every three years.
Society for Vascular Surgery
The Society for Vascular Surgery’s Vascular Quality Initiative (SVS VQI) has awarded Pima Heart and Vascular the highest ranking of three stars for its active participation in the Registry Participation Program.
The mission of the SVS VQI is to improve patient safety and the quality of vascular care delivery by providing web-based collection, aggregation and analysis of clinical data submitted in registry format for all patients undergoing specific vascular treatments.
Tucson Lifestyle Magazine has included four of Pima Heart and Vascular’s physicians for the last six years.
