Tower Health hospitals have received a total of eight American Heart Association Get With The Guidelines achievement awards for demonstrating commitment to following up-to-date, research-based guidelines for the treatment of heart disease and stroke, saving more lives, shortening recovery times, and reducing readmissions to the hospital. Tower Health recognitions include:

“Through the ongoing hard work and dedication of our team members, the individuals in our communities know they are in expert and capable hands when they come to our hospitals for their care,” said P. Sue Perrotty Tower Health President and CEO. Awards and recognitions, such as these from the American Heart Association, demonstrate our mission of providing high-quality healthcare to our patients. I congratulate all of my Tower Health colleagues on this achievement.”

Every 40 seconds, someone in the U.S. has a stroke or heart attack, and heart disease and stroke are the No. 1 and No. 5 causes of death in the United States, respectively. Studies show patients can recover better when providers consistently follow treatment guidelines.

Tower Health hospitals qualified for the recognition by demonstrating how they provide quality care for stroke and heart failure patients. In addition to following treatment guidelines, Get With The Guidelines winners also provide education to patients to help them manage their health and recovery at home.
