McLaren Bay Region Among Nation’s Top Performing Hospitals for Treatment of Heart Attack Patients

McLaren Bay Region has received the American College of Cardiology’s NCDR ACTION Registry Silver Performance Achievement Award for 2018. McLaren Bay Region is one of only 95 hospitals nationwide to receive the honor.

The award recognizes McLaren Bay Region’s commitment and success in implementing a higher standard of care for heart attack patients and signifies an aggressive goal of treating these patients to standard levels of care as outlined by the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association clinical guidelines and recommendations.

To receive the ACTION Registry Silver Performance Achievement Award, McLaren Bay Region has demonstrated sustained achievement in the ACTION Registry for four consecutive quarters and has performed at the top level of standards for specific performance measures. Full participation in the registry engages hospitals in a robust quality improvement process using data to drive improvements in adherence to guideline recommendations and overall quality of care provided to heart attack patients.

“As a Silver Performance Award recipient, McLaren Bay Region has shown it is a leader in implementing standards of care and protocols for its patients,” said Deepak L. Bhatt, MD, MPH, FACC, Chair, ACTION Registry; Executive Director of Interventional Cardiovascular Programs, Brigham and Women’s Hospital Heart and Vascular Center; and Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School. “By meeting the requirements set forth in the registry and establishing a culture of providing guideline-recommended therapy, McLaren Bay Region is saving lives and improving outcomes of heart attack patients.”

The Center for Disease Control estimates that over 700,000 Americans suffer a heart attack each year. A heart attack occurs when a blood clot in a coronary artery partially or completely blocks blood flow to the heart muscle. Treatment guidelines include administering aspirin upon arrival and discharge, timely restoration of blood flow to the blocked artery, smoking cessation counseling and cardiac rehabilitation, among others.

“The Doctors, Nurses, and entire cardiovascular care delivery team are dedicated to providing high quality care,” said Roger Skrabut, Director of Patient Care Services at McLaren Bay Region. “This award not only demonstrates that level of dedication, but also shows McLaren Bay Region’s commitment to exceeding established quality benchmarks.”

ACTION 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.
