Fountain Valley Regional Hospital and Medical Center receives Mission: Lifeline NSTEMI Silver achievement award

Sep 17, 2020

Fountain Valley, Calif., - Fountain Valley Regional Hospital and Medical Center has received the Mission: Lifeline® NSTEMI Silver Quality Achievement Award for implementing specific quality improvement measures outlined by the American Heart Association for the treatment of patients who suffer heart attacks.

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, to EMS transport and continuing through hospital treatment and discharge. The initiative provides tools, training and other resources to support heart attack care following protocols from the most recent evidence-based treatment guidelines.

Fountain Valley Regional Hospital and Medical Center earned the award by 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.

“Fountain Valley Regional Hospital and Medical Center is dedicated to providing optimal care for heart attack patients,” said Kenneth McFarland, CEO. “We are pleased to be recognized for our dedication and achievements in cardiac care through Mission: Lifeline.”

“We commend Fountain Valley Regional Hospital and Medical Center for this award in recognition for following evidence-based guidelines for timely heart attack treatment,” said Tim Henry, M.D., Chair of the Mission: Lifeline Acute Coronary Syndrome Subcommittee. “We applaud the significant institutional commitment to their critical role in the system of care for quickly and appropriately treating heart attack patients.”
