Signs of achievement.
Providing quality healthcare is our focus.
In addition to being accredited by The Joint Commission, Brandywine Hospital is proud to have received the following awards and accreditations for providing quality care:
2019 Mission: Lifeline® Bronze Receiving Quality Achievement Award
The Mission: Lifeline® Bronze Receiving Quality Achievement Award was awarded to Brandywine Hospital for implementing specific quality improvement measures outlined by the American Heart Association for the treatment of patients who suffer severe heart attacks.
Every year, more than 250,000 people experience an ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) the most deadly type of heart attack caused by a blockage of blood flow to the heart that requires timely treatment. To prevent death, it’s critical to restore blood flow as quickly as possible, either by mechanically opening the blocked vessel or by providing clot-busting medication.
The American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline program’s goal is to reduce system barriers to prompt treatment for heart attacks, beginning with the 9-1-1 call and continuing through hospital treatment.
