Marketing Your ACC Accreditation

We invite the facilities that we work with to learn more about how to market an earned Accreditation. Additionally, those facilities that have earned an ACC accreditation or certification will receive an Accreditation Marketing Kit within three weeks of the date of the announcement of their accreditation/certification status. The kit contains a copy of our Accreditation/Certification Marketing Policy.

To order EHAC (Early Heart Attack Care) materials that can be be customized to include your facility name, please visit our online store. If you prefer, you may also download the EHAC brochure and customize it yourself. It is available in English and Spanish language versions. For additional questions about EHAC matierals, please contact: community@acc.org.

Guidelines for Use of Accreditation Services Seals

Only hospitals and facilities that are currently accredited by ACC for Chest Pain, Cardiac Cath Lab, Heart Failure, and/or Atrial Fibrillation or FreeStanding ED Cardiac Care certification are entitled to display our seals and to announce their accreditation/certification status.

By adhering to the standardized use of our accreditation seals, you will help ensure the proper display of these valuable and visually powerful communications tools. Artwork for accreditation seals is supplied in the Accreditation Marketing Kit that is sent within three weeks of your official notice of accreditation.

Minimum size for reproduction of seals is two inches in height. Seals may be reproduced in black and white, but only when use of ink colors are restricted or the use of the primary Pantone color noted for each seal below creates a design conflict.
