The 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.
Bon Secours earned the awards by meeting specific criteria and 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.
“Bon Secours is committed to providing quality, optimal care for heart attack patients,” said Roberta Bogaev, M.D., chief of cardiology at the Bon Secours Heart and Vascular Program at Bon Secours Virginia Health System. “We are pleased to be recognized for our dedication and achievements in cardiac care through Mission: Lifeline.”
“We commend Bon Secours Virginia 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.”
