Metro Health Hospital Receives National Award for Heart Attack Care

Metro Health Hospital has received another national award for its exceptional heart attack care. The hospital was among six in Michigan – and 93 across the country – recognized with a 2008 Silver Performance Achievement Award from the National Cardiovascular Data Registry as part of its inaugural Acute Coronary Treatment and International Outcome Network "Get with the Guidelines" program.

The award, which is based on guidelines from the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association, acknowledged Metro’s efforts to deliver high-level quality care to patients experiencing a heart attack. Metro is one of more than 400 hospitals nationwide participating in the NCDR quality improvement project.

"We are honored to be recognized with yet another award for the quality care we provide to patients who experience a heart attack," said Dan Witt, director of cardiovascular services. "This award acknowledges the measurable difference our medical team makes in the lives of our patients every day.

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
  • Manages more than 95 percent of heart attack cases with cardiologists
  • Uses standardized discharge instructions
