Nearly half of all adults in the United States have experienced some form of heart disease. The AHA’s Mission: Lifeline program’s goal is to reduce system barriers to prompt medical care for heart attacks, beginning with the 911 call and continuing through hospital treatment. Research shows that hospitals adhering to clinical measures through the AHA’s quality improvement programs see fewer readmissions and lower mortality rates.
To further enhance cardiac care, St. Luke’s offers Cardiac Cath Labs with world-class imaging capabilities. To learn more, visit slhduluth.com/heart.
