ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital achieves state’s first American College of Cardiology heart failure accreditation
ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital has achieved accreditation in heart failure through the American College of Cardiology for its expertise in managing care for patients with heart failure. The hospital is the first in Wisconsin, and one of only 52 in the U.S., to earn the accreditation.
Heart failure-accredited hospitals are recognized for providing consistent treatment across the continuum of care while safeguarding patient care and discharge from the hospital. Facilities that achieve accreditation meet or exceed an array of stringent criteria and have teams of doctors, nurses, clinicians and staff who consistently work to improve patient outcomes through the application of standardized care.
Hospitals receiving the designation participate in a multi-faceted application process that includes a rigorous on-site review and ongoing monitoring for sustained success.
"This achievement reflects ProHealth Care’s dedication to meeting the high standards required to attain this accreditation," said cardiologist Matthew Weinberg, MD, medical director of ProHealth Care’s chronic heart failure care program. "The biggest beneficiaries are ProHealth patients, who receive the highest quality of care."
