Duke Energy begins rolling out new logo
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Duke Energy is ready to roll out its new logo.
The logo with light blue, dark blue and green arcs and the company name in all capital letters represents Duke Energy’s merger with Progress Energy last year. Duke Energy spokeswoman Ginny Mackin says the logo is one of many steps to creating the unified company.
Duke Energy will begin placing its logo on buildings, utility trucks, bills and other items Monday in areas that were served by Duke Energy before the merger. Areas that were served by Progress Energy before the merger will begin seeing the new logo in late April.
The new Duke Energy serves more than 7 million customers in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. The company now has almost 28,000 employees.
Cardiac Lab earns accreditation
MUNCIE — Indiana University Health Ball Memorial Hospital Echocardiography Laboratory has been awarded accreditation by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) in the Adult Transthoracic area of Echocardiography.
Accreditation by the IAC means that IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital Echocardiography Laboratory has undergone a thorough review of its operational and technical components by a panel of experts. The IAC grants accreditation only to those facilities that are found to be providing quality patient care, in compliance with national standards through a comprehensive application process including detailed case study review.
IAC accreditation is a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an indication that the facility has been carefully critiqued on all aspects of its operation as well as the submission of actual case studies for review. The case studies are crucial in determining the facility’s compliance with the standards, and are the basis for judgment of the quality of work that facilities perform..
IAC accreditation is widely respected within the medical community, as illustrated by the support of the national medical societies related to Echocardiography, which include physicians, technologists and medical physicists.
