Beebe Healthcare Earns 3 Quality Awards for Heart and Stroke Care from the American Heart Association
Beebe Healthcare is pleased to announce it has earned three key quality indicator awards from the American Heart Association’s 2023 Get With The Guidelines® program.
Beebe’s designations recognized quality care for heart attack, heart failure, and stroke patients. These awards recognize hospital cardiovascular and stroke teams across the U.S. that apply the latest scientific guidelines in the patient care environment and are achieving measurable patient outcome improvements as a result. Designations are presented based on data reported the previous year. Beebe is consistently awarded these annual honors.
Beebe’s 2023 Get with Guidelines awards include:
Mission Lifeline® - STEMI Receiving Center – GOLD PLUS
This award recognizes the implementation of quality treatment and care coordination for patients who seek care at Beebe during or after experiencing a heart attack. It underscores the importance of rapid, research-based care as patients suffer from ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), a heart attack that is known to be more severe and life-threatening than others. Mission: Lifeline is a national, community-based initiative that promotes the importance of streamlined processes of care for time-sensitive, neuro-cardiovascular diseases.
Get with the Guidelines Heart Failure Gold Plus with Target Type 2 Diabetes Honor Roll
Beebe earned this award based on its demonstrated commitment to treating heart failure patients according to the most up-to-date clinical guidelines outlined by the American Heart Association. This quality achievement award recognizes Beebe’s commitment to research and evidence-based care, leading to improved outcomes, reduced readmissions, and increased healthy days at home for patients with heart failure.
Get with the Guidelines - Stroke - GOLD PLUS
Beebe earned this award based on its daily commitment to ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines, ultimately leading to more lives saved and disabilities reduced. This designation recognizes Beebe’s stroke team as one that integrates proven knowledge and best practices into patient care processes on a daily basis. It also acknowledges the team’s dedication to helping patients optimize their recovery process following stroke, so they can live longer, healthier lives.
