Taking health to heart

Written by Healthy Living

The Villages Regional Hospital received the 2017 Mission: Lifeline Silver Receiving Center Quality Achievement Award from the American Heart Association (AHA). The award is given for quality improvement measures and timely care for patients experiencing a heart attack. The goal of the AHA is to reduce system barriers to prompt treatment for heart attacks beginning with the 9-1-1 call and continuing through hospital treatment. The Silver Receiving Center award means the hospital achieved an 85 percent or greater overall composite score with no measure below 75 percent for consecutive 12-month intervals.
