Washington Adventist Hospital, Shady Grove Medical Center Earn Honors for Quality Care of Severe Heart Attacks

Adventist HealthCare’s two hospitals have each received two awards from the American Heart Association (AHA) for providing high-quality care to patients who suffer severe heart attacks.

Adventist HealthCare Washington Adventist Hospital received the 2018 Mission: Lifeline NSTEMI Gold Achievement Award, and Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center received the Bronze Achievement Award. These honors recognize the hospitals for their adherence to quality measures in treating patients with the two most severe types of heart attacks, caused by either a partial or full blockage of the heart’s arteries.

The hospitals earned these awards by meeting specific criteria and standards of performance while quickly treating the type of heart attacks known as NSTEMIs, or non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarctions. Rapid treatment is critical for NSTEMI patients to save lives and prevent serious damage to the heart.

Selecting a Hospital to Receive Care

Quality measures provide a good snapshot of the quality of care that hospitals give; however, a hospital's quality is more than just its scores. You can use this information in addition to discussions with your health care provider and family in choosing a hospital to receive care for your particular condition.
