Riverview receives award for cardiac care


Riverview Health has received the American College of Cardiology’s NCDR ACTION Registry – GWTG Platinum Performance Achievement Award for 2015, one of only 319 hospitals nationwide to receive the prestigious honor.

“This award is a direct reflection of our hardworking Heart & Vascular team members and their commitment and success in implementing a higher standard of care for heart attack patients,” said Tammi Nash, clinical operations director at Riverview Health Heart & Vascular.

To achieve this award, a certain level of treatment guidelines had to be implemented for eight consecutive quarters. Riverview Health was also able to meet a performance standard of 90 percent for specific performance measures. The implementation of these guidelines requires successful coordination of the Heart & Vascular team and emergency personnel, and it’s a critical step in saving the lives and improving outcomes of heart attack patients.
