Metro Health Hospital Receives National Award for Heart Attack Care

Metro Health Hospital has again received a national award for its exceptional care in treating heart attacks.

The hospital was among six in Michigan – and 139 across the country – recognized with a 2014 Silver Performance Achievement Award from the American College of Cardiology Foundation’s NCDR ACTION Registry “Get with the Guidelines” program, or GWTG.

ACTION Registry GWTG is a national standard of quality for patients with coronary artery disease, specifically high-risk heart attack patients. The award recognizes Metro’s commitment and success in implementing this higher standard of care for heart attack patients according to levels of care outlined by the American College or Cardiology and the American Heart Association clinical guidelines.

These guidelines include administering aspirin upon arrival and discharge, timely restoration of blood flow to the blocked artery and cardiac rehabilitation. Metro Health consistently met or exceeded performance standards for four consecutive quarters to be eligible for this award.

In an effort to deliver excellent care to all heart-attack patients, Metro Health:

  • Uses standardized admission orders for all patients experiencing chest pains and related symptoms that would indicate a heart attack
  • Provides smoking cessation information to all patients upon admission, whether they smoke or not
  • Uses standardized discharge instructions
