St. Mary's Hospital has Been Awarded 3 Honors from the American Heart Association

May 16, 2016

TUCSON, MAY 17, 2016 — Carondelet St. Mary's Hospital, Southern Arizona’s longest continuously operating hospital, has been awarded three honors from the American Heart Association (AHA): one for excellence in heart failure care, one for excellence in stroke care and a special "Honor Roll Elite" designation for measures that ensure stroke patients arriving at St. Mary's quickly receive the U.S. FDA-approved "clot-busting" treatment for ischemic stroke.

The Get With The Guidelines® Heart Failure Gold Quality Achievement Award and Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award both recognize Carondelet St. Mary's for treatment that meets nationally accepted, evidence-based standards and recommendations. To qualify for the Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus designation, St. Mary's adhered to measures that reduce the time between a stoke patient’s arrival and treatment with tPA, the "gold standard" of stroke care, which works by dissolving blood clots and improving flow to the blood-deprived area of the brain. 

"When treating heart failure and stroke, it's vital that we work fast, but it's equally vital that we work smart," said Carondelet St. Mary's president and CEO Amy Beiter, M.D. "The quality measures we've adopted with the help of the American Heart Association's expertise ensure that we're building on the most current, evidence-based guidelines for stabilizing patients, saving lives and speeding recovery, and we're very proud that AHA has recognized the hard work of our doctors, nurses and staff with these awards."

AHA reports that each year in the U.S., 5.7 million adults suffer from heart failure and nearly 800,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke. Launched in 2001, the AHA's Get With The Guidelines® initiative provides hospitals with the latest research-based guidelines for emergency treatment and hastening recovery. Carondelet St. Mary's will be honored at the AHA's annual Quality Achievement Awards Ceremonies and included in the 2016 U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals Edition as an award winner.
