Recognizing SVMC's Dedication & Accomplishments to Heart Health During American Heart Month

Committed to a full, healthy life for our patients and community, we are highlighting the latest accomplishments that are related to heart health for the month of February. The latest accomplishments include the BETA Quest for Zero Award and the recognition from the American Heart Association. 

BETA Heart:
This award focuses on the implementation of five specific domains, all focusing around transparent communication healthcare and supporting our staff and patients. SVMC has successfully completed 3 of the 5 domains, and continues to work towards all 5 in the upcoming year. To achieve the BETA awards, all members of a participating hospital’s teams must complete rigorous online learnings. The annual training portion of the program is part of BETA’s Quest for Zero preventable errors initiative.

American Heart Association
SVMC was listed in U.S. News and World’s Report of America’s Best Hospitals in recognition of the stroke program for quality healthcare achievement. The SVMC stroke team successfully achieved the Silver Award and Diabetic Plus Award. These awards are given when the performance measures in the Get With The Guidelines® quality improvement program are met for 12 consecutive months. This consistent adherence to evidence-based treatment guidelines has been shown to have a tangible impact on patients’ lives. This award signifies the stroke team’s contribution to the American Heart Association’s mission of building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

As heart health advocates, we're supporting American Heart Month and showcasing this validates our commitment to quality care, which is a priority that encompasses customer service, compliance and wellness for our community to thrive.
