This is the 5th year they have hosted this breakfast to thank them for their quick response and follow-up when someone has a stroke or heart attack.
Five years ago, the goal from the time paramedic’s arrived and began to monitor a patient’s heart (EKG), and then get the hospital, process through the emergency Department and into the Cath Lab for treatment took 120 minutes – today it takes on average, 46 minutes! This great improvement came through education and streamlining the process of how cardiac patients are treated. I now see why we have been nationally recognized by Thompson Reuters as a 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospital for 2011. The joint effort between our team of dedicated Hospital Associates and the outstanding community emergency medical services work together everyday to provide great care for people in cardiac distress.
