Vidant Health hospitals have received several American Heart Association/American Stroke Association Get With The Guidelines achievement awards.

These awards recognize the hospital’s commitment to ensuring patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines based on the latest scientific evidence.

“Being honored for excellent patient care is a great recognition for a hospital to receive,” said Teresa Anderson, vice president of quality at Vidant Medical Center. “Vidant’s participation in Get With The Guidelines demonstrates our commitment to quality care. The system is proud to be a part of the American Heart Association’s efforts to turn guidelines into lifelines.”

Vidant Health hospitals receiving recognition include:

Vidant Duplin Hospital

Bronze: Stroke

Vidant Edgecombe Hospital

Bronze: Stroke

Vidant Medical Center

Gold Plus: Heart Failure

Gold: Mission Lifeline STEMI

Gold: Mission Lifeline NSTEMI

Silver Plus and Target: Stroke Honor Roll

Silver: Resuscitation

Vidant Roanoke-Chowan Hospital

Bronze: Stroke

“We are pleased to recognize Vidant Health for their commitment to stroke care,” said Dr. Eric E. Smith, national chairman of the Get With The Guidelines Steering Committee and an associate professor of neurology at the University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada. “Research has shown that hospitals adhering to clinical measures through the Get With The Guidelines quality improvement initiative can often see fewer readmissions and lower mortality rates.”

Stroke and cardiovascular disease — which includes heart failure, heart attack and cardiac arrest — are among the leading causes of death in the nation. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of hospitalization in North Carolina. The state also has a greater burden of cardiovascular disease, especially stroke.
