Colorado Springs’ Albert Vein Institute is the first and only medical facility in the state to achieve the national recognition from the the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission, according to a press release from the commission.
The medical facility received the Vein Center Accreditation: Superficial Venous Evaluation and Management by the IAC, which means AVI underwent a thorough review of its operations by a panel of experts. After a comprehensive application process and detailed review of patient procedures, the IAC grants accreditation only to facilities that provide quality patient care in compliance with IAC’s national standards.
With more than two decades of training and experience in treating venous diseases, Dr. James D. Albert, founder of AVI, is board certified in both cardiovascular surgery and phlebology, the diagnosis and treatment of venous diseases.
“We know this gives our patients and their referring doctors an additional level of comfort, knowing our minimally invasive procedures are performed at the highest level of medical competence,” said Albert.
According to the IAC, patients can rely on accreditation as a seal of approval that the vein center’s processes and procedures have been carefully evaluated by medical experts in the field of treatment and management of superficial venous disorders.
AVI has centers in Colorado Springs and Denver.
