Award-Winning Heart Care at Sentara RMH

Sentara RMH Cardiovascular Services has received three prestigious awards recently for excellence in heart care.

IBM Watson Health has included Sentara RMH among its 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals for 2020. This top 50 designation is part of the Watson Health 100 Top Hospitals national benchmark series. Being named a 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals winner means that Sentara RMH outperforms its peers on a balanced scorecard that includes measures like inpatient and extended outcomes, clinical processes, and efficiency and cost for the two most common cardiovascular conditions (heart attack and heart failure) and cardiac interventions (balloon angioplasty with stenting and coronary artery bypass surgery).
Sentara RMH also has received the American College of Cardiologys NCDR Chest PainMI Registry Platinum Performance Achievement Award for 2019. SRMH is one of only 225 hospitals nationwide to receive this award. The platinum award recognizes SRMHs commitment to and success in implementing a higher standard of care for heart attack patients. It signifies that SRMH has reached an aggressive goal of treating these patients to standard levels of care as outlined by the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Associations clinical guidelines. To achieve the platinum award, SRMH had to demonstrate that it has sustained achievement in the Chest PainMI Registry for eight consecutive quarters.
The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) National Adult Cardiac Surgery Database has also released its Star Rating for the 12-Month rolling time-period ending June 30, 2019. Sentara RMH received a two-star rating from the STS for its performance in coronary artery bypass surgeries. The STS awards one, two or three stars, with two and three being a positive rating.
