Riverview Health has received the American College of Cardiology’s NCDR Chest Pain—MI Registry Platinum Performance Achievement Award for 2019. Riverview Health has earned this recognition six years in a row and is one of only 225 hospitals nationwide this year to receive this prestigious award.
“Receiving this award for the past six years is a true testament of our hardworking Heart & Vascular team members,” said Angie Bolinger, director of Cardiovascular, Infusion & Outpatient Clinical Services at Riverview Health. “By successfully implementing a higher standard of care for heart attack patients, we’re able to improve their outcomes, which is the greatest reward for us.”
To achieve this award, a certain level of treatment guidelines had to be implemented for eight consecutive quarters. Riverview Health was able to perform at the top level of standards 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.
Riverview Health is comprised of a full-service, 156-bed hospital in Noblesville and a hospital in Westfield with 16 beds. Also included are 23 primary, immediate and specialty-care facilities in Hamilton County.
