KUDOS - Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas

Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas has earned the joint commission Gold Seal of Approval and the American Heart Association heart-check mark for comprehensive heart attack center certification. Texas Health Dallas is the first facility in Texas and the fourth hospital in the nation to receive this level of certification.

Reviewers evaluated the quality of the hospital’s treatment of acute coronary syndrome that causes sudden reductions in blood flow to the heart and STEMI, one of the most common and lethal types of heart attacks.

Critical Care and Cardiology Director Melinda Hirshouer, DNP, RN, says, “It validates the commitment and effort for the multidisciplinary care that our patients receive, from the identification and treatment of coronary artery disease to the prevention and treatment of heart attacks, and finally, to recovery and cardiac rehabilitation.”
