Resurrection Health Care Hospitals Receive Chest Pain Accreditation
Date:3/2/2009

CHICAGO, March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Resurrection Health Care today announced that it is one of only two hospital systems in the nation to receive accreditation by the Society of Chest Pain Centers (SCPC). With seven accredited Chest Pain Centers throughout the Chicago area, Resurrection physicians deliver specialized care during the critical early stages of a heart attack when treatments are most effective, and educate and monitor patients to ensure that a patient is neither sent home too early nor needlessly admitted.

With the rise of Chest Pain Centers came the need to establish standards designed to improve the consistency and quality of care provided to patients. SCPC's accreditation process ensures centers meet or exceed quality-of-care standards in acute cardiac medicine. Resurrection hospitals demonstrated expertise and commitment to quality patient care through a wide set of stringent criteria and onsite evaluations conducted by SCPC.

"We are very proud of this distinction. It acknowledges that our approach to patient management is recognized by a leading accrediting organization as a best practices protocol," said Cynthia Cook, R.N., system director, Performance Distinction - Cardiology for Resurrection Health Care. "Area residents can be assured of continued and consistent high quality care for cardiac patients across the Resurrection Health Care system."

Heart attacks are the leading cause of death in the United States, with 600,000 dying annually of heart disease. More than five million Americans visit hospitals each year with chest pain. The goal of SCPC is to significantly reduce the mortality rate of these patients by teaching people to recognize and react to the early symptoms of a possible heart attack, reduce the time that it takes to receive treatment, and increase the accuracy and effectiveness of treatment.
