Cabell Huntington Hospital's Neurophysiology Lab recently was granted a five-year national accreditation based on quality management and policies. The accreditation is the first for the two-year-old Neurophysiology Lab that provides brain wave monitoring services to diagnose seizure-related diseases such as epilepsy.
"This is a measure of our commitment to provide excellent neuroscience care for our patients including EEGs, EMGs and epilepsy monitoring," said Mark Stecker, MD, PhD, Director of the Neurophysiology Lab at Cabell Huntington Hospital. "This accreditation process measured the quality and knowledge of our staff and services and this distinguishes us from other facilities that may offer the same services."
Only one other neuroscience lab in West Virginia has the accreditation from ABRET (American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists). Cabell Huntington's program has shown rapid growth in the past year offering state-of-the-art technology from experienced specialists.
