Six Memorial Hermann hospitals were recently recognized by the American Heart Association (AHA) for their treatment of patients suffering severe heart attacks.
The hospitals were awarded with the AHA’s The Mission: Lifeline Awards, which are part of the AHA's work to ensure heart attack patients get prompt medical attention.
The AHA’s awards to Memorial’s hospitals include the Memorial Hermann Heart & Vascular Institute – Texas Medical Center, which received the Mission: Lifeline Gold Quality Achievement Award, and Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital, which received the STEMI Silver Plus Quality Achievement Award.
“Memorial Hermann is dedicated to improving the quality of care for our patients who suffer a heart attack, and the American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline program is helping us accomplish that goal through nationally-respected clinical guidelines,” Memorial Hermann’s Vice President of Heart & Vascular Services Amy Harberg said in a statement.
Receiving the Mission: Lifeline STEMI Silver Quality Achievement Award were Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital, Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital and Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital. Memorial Hermann Heart & Vascular Institute – Texas Medical Center and Memorial Hermann’s Sugar Land Hospital were honored with NSTEMI Bronze Quality Achievement Awards.
“We commend Memorial Hermann for its achievement awards, which reflect a significant institutional commitment to the highest quality of care for their heart attack patients,” AHA Chair of the Mission: Lifeline Advisory Working Group Dr. James Jollis said.
