Shady Grove and Washington Adventist Earn Cardiac Care Awards

Shady Grove Adventist Hospital

Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center in Rockville, and Washington Adventist Hospital in Takoma Park, are being recognized for providing the highest quality care to heart attack patients by the American College of Cardiology’s NCDR ACTION Registry Get With the Guidelines (GWTG).

Shady Grove Medical Center earned the 2017 Platinum Performance Achievement Award, which means it consistently followed treatment guidelines for eight consecutive quarters and met a performance standard of 90 percent or better for specific measures. Shady Grove is one of only 193 hospitals in the country to achieve Platinum.

This is the third straight year Shady Grove has been named a Platinum Award winner.

Washington Adventist Hospital received the 2017 Silver Performance Achievement Award, which means it followed the guidelines for four consecutive quarters and met a performance standard of 90 percent or better for specific measures. Washington Adventist is one of only 105 hospitals to receive the Silver Award.

“We are pleased that Shady Grove Medical Center and Washington Adventist Hospital have received these prestigious awards,” said Michael Chen, MD, an interventional cardiologist at both hospitals and medical director of the Catheterization Lab at Washington Adventist. “It demonstrates Adventist HealthCare’s continued commitment to improving the quality and safety of care provided to heart attack patients.”

Both hospitals are also accredited as Chest Pain Centers with PCI by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care, an Institute of the American College of Cardiology, for the efficient and rapid treatment of heart attacks.
