TJC Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care. The certification recognizes organizations that provide clinical programs across the continuum of care for heart attacks.
“With this achievement of AMI Disease Specific Certification, it demonstrates Northside Hospital’s commitment and dedication to providing its community with timely access to the highest quality cardiovascular care,” said Margaret Henry, clinical director of Northside Hospital's cardiology service line.
At Northside Hospital, a team of board-certified, fellowship-trained interventional cardiologists, cardiac-trained nurses and technologists has the highest level of expertise in diagnosing and treating cardiac conditions like heart attacks, coronary artery disease, congenital heart defects and heart failure. They offer a wide range of diagnostic, treatment and support services including PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention) for STEMI (ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction).
In addition to the Disease-Specific Certification for AMI, Northside also was recognized for providing high quality cardiovascular care through the American Heart Association Mission: Lifeline and Get With The Guidelines® programs.
