Posted on Thursday, July 14, 2011

NHCH has been recognized with the American Heart Association’s “Get With The Guidelines” Silver Award. The goal of participating in this program is to save lives and our participation demonstrates NHCH is committed to providing quality care. Congratulations to our NHCH Team for their dedication to excellent patient care and for turning guidelines into lifelines.

Hospitals receiving “Get With The Guidelines” Silver Performance Award have reached an aggressive goal of treating heart failure patients with 85% or higher compliance to core standard levels of care as outlined by the American Heart Association for 12 consecutive months. Most hospitals that implement “Get With The Guidelines” realize measurable results, including improved patient outcomes and fewer recurring events. It’s a difference that shows in the lives of patients and their families and in the satisfaction felt by caregivers empowered to do their best. “Get With The Guidelines” puts the unparalleled expertise of the American Heart Association to work for hospitals nationwide, helping hospital care teams ensure that the care provided to heart failure patients is aligned with the latest evidencebased guidelines.

NHCH is proud to be a part of the American Heart Association’s Silver Award recipients for 2011.
