Memorial Medical Center receives awards for heart attack and stroke patient care

MODESTO, CA – Sutter Health’s Memorial Medical Center (MMC) is part of an elite group of hospitals recently recognized by the American Heart Association for awards signifying a commitment to guideline adherence and quality improvement for the STEMI and NSTEMI (heart attack) patient population, and for care of patients suffering strokes.

MMC received both the Mission: Lifeline® STEMI Receiving Center GOLD Quality Achievement Award and the Mission: Lifeline® NSTEMI Bronze Quality Achievement Award for performance based on the treatment of patients who suffer severe heart attacks.*

“We are dedicated to improving the quality of care for our patients who suffer a heart attack, and the American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline program is helping us accomplish that goal through nationally respected clinical guidelines,” said Daryn Kumar, MMC chief executive officer. “We are pleased to be recognized for our dedication and achievements in cardiac care, and I am very proud of our team.”

The American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline program’s goal is to reduce system barriers to prompt treatment for heart attacks, beginning with the 9-1-1 call and continuing through hospital treatment.

“We commend Memorial Medical Center for these achievement awards, which reflect a significant institutional commitment to the highest quality of care for their heart attack patients,” said James G. Jollis, MD, Chair of the Mission: Lifeline Advisory Working Group. “Achieving these awards means the hospital has met specific reporting and achievement measures for the treatment of their patients who suffer heart attacks and we applaud them for their commitment to quality and timely care.”
