Date:8/2/2018

The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association presented CHI St. Joseph Health Regional Hospital (SJHRH) with four awards on Wednesday, July 11, 2018, recognizing the hospital’s commitment to compliance with quality measures and delivering rapid and life-saving medications and treatments to their patients.

  • Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award with Target: Stroke Honor RollSM Elite Plus is an advanced level of recognition, acknowledging SJHRH for consistent compliance with Quality Measures embedded within the Patient Management Tool, and to qualify for Target: Stroke Honor RollSM Elite Plus, SJHRH had to meet quality measures also associated with rapid delivery of stroke medication and treatment. The SJHRH team met the program’s highest standard, giving tPA, the only drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat stroke, within one hour to more than 75 of acute stroke patients.
  • Get With The Guidelines®-Heart Failure Silver Plus Quality Achievement Award recognizes SJHRH’s commitment to ensuring heart failure patients always receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines founded in the latest scientific evidence. The goal is to speeding up recovery and reducing hospital readmissions for heart failure patients.
  • Mission: Lifeline NSTEMI Bronze Achievement Award is awarded for meeting specific criteria and standards of performance for the quick and appropriate treatment of NSTEMI heart attack patients by providing emergency procedures to re-establish blood flow to blocked arteries when needed.
  • Mission: Lifeline STEMI Receiving Center – Bronze Plus Award is awarded for implementing measures outlined by the American Heart Association for the treatment of patients who suffer severe heart attacks. This means that SJHRH meets very specific standards of performance for quick and appropriate treatment through emergency procedures to re-establish blood flow to blocked arteries in heart attack patients coming into the hospital directly or by transfer from another facility.

The SJHRH stroke program was the first Joint-Commission-accredited Primary Stroke Center in the Brazos Valley, the hospital is the only hospital in the region that offers endovascular treatment for stroke patients. This means that the hospital is able to successfully treat stroke patients up to twenty four hours following the initial onset of symptoms. This also marks the third consecutive year that SJHRH has won awards for stroke care.

As the region’s first dedicated heart failure clinic, SJHRH offers some of the most advanced heart failure treatments. This marks the second consecutive year that the hospital has won awards for heart failure care, but the first year to win the silver award.

Get With the Guidelines is the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s hospital-based quality improvement program that provides hospitals with tools and resources to increase adherence to the latest research-based guidelines. This program is used widely by more than 1,500 hospitals across the country, including many CHI hospitals.
