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.

Our accreditation graphics reflect the collaboration between the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA). These images may be used to announce and market your accreditation with the understanding that only hospitals and facilities that are currently accredited or certified by ACC are entitled to display our seals and to announce their accreditation/certification status.

Each accreditation mark is made up of three parts: the ACC Accreditation Services logo; the AHA's Hospital Accreditation logo, and the appropriate Accreditation seal. Please contact if you wish to obtain the appropriate accreditation graphics for your ACC accreditation designation.
