INDIAN RIVER COUNTY - Three Indian River Medical Center cath lab employees, Linda Gerace, Bill Ludwig and Michael Swanson, earned significant credentials within their professions.
Mr. Swanson earned the cardiac interventional credential from the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
Ms. Gerace and Mr. Ludwig earned the registered cardiovascular invasive specialist credential from Cardiovascular Credentialing International.
"This lends tremendous credibility to IRMC's cath lab and heart center, as now 100 percent of its eligible employees are credentialed to perform and assist in specialized cardiac care," said Randy Kerperien, manager of cardiac catheterization and echocardiography.
Cardiovascular invasive specialists must have two years experience on the job before they can sit for these credentialing exams.
