Marshfield Medical Center in Marshfield and Marshfield Medical Center-Weston have received American College of Cardiology's NCDR Chest Pain ̶ MI Registry Platinum Performance Achievement Awards for 2023. They are two of just 262 hospitals nationwide, and part of only eight in Wisconsin, to receive the honor.
Marshfield has received the platinum award for three consecutive years and Weston has received the platinum award for four consecutive years.
“It's an honor to have received this award and high recognition," said Jeron Jackson, cardiovascular service line administrator. “Marshfield and Weston have reached an aggressive goal of treating these patients to standard levels of care as outlined by the American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association guidelines."
Chest Pain ̶ MI Registry empowers health care provider teams to consistently treat heart attack patients according to the most current, science-based guidelines and establishes a national standard for understanding and improving the quality, safety and outcomes of care provided for patients with coronary artery disease, specifically high-risk heart attack patients.
To receive the Chest Pain ̶ MI Registry Platinum Performance Achievement Award, health care facilities must demonstrate sustained achievement in the Chest Pain ̶ MI Registry for two consecutive years and perform at the highest level for specific performance measures.
“We continually appreciate the work of all the involved physicians, APCs, cath lab teams, cath lab leadership, database teams, hospital leadership, and many others for their contributions to make this happen," Jackson said. “Receiving this award several years in a row shows our dedication to providing the highest quality cardiovascular care."
Janet Abell, administrative director of CIRV services, also shared her appreciation for the teams who earned the award.
“This is a well-deserved recognition," Abell said. It takes many dedicated providers to achieve the highest level of patient care, and to continuously maintain this excellent level of service."
