FMC Receives Silver Performance Achievement Award

LANCASTER, Ohio (March 15, 2013) – Fairfield Medical Center has received the ACTION Registry®—GWTG™ Silver Performance Achievement Award from the American College of Cardiology’s National Cardiovascular Data Registry.

“This award is tangible evidence of our hospital’s commitment and success when it comes to a higher standard of care for our heart attack patients,” said Mina Ubbing, FMC president and CEO. “It also shows that we have achieved an aggressive performance standard of 90 percent or better for specific performance measures for four consecutive quarters.”

The award recognizes participating hospitals that have maintained a high level of care for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) patients. The registry is a partnership between the American College of Cardiology Foundation and American Heart Association that is also supported by the American College of Emergency Physicians, Society of Chest Pain Centers and Society of Hospital Medicine. ACTION Registry—GWTG empowers health care provider teams to consistently treat heart attack patients according to the most current, science-based guidelines.

“Participation in ACTION-GWTG is voluntary and Fairfield Medical Center participates so that we can benchmark ourselves against top hospitals in the nation, thus providing the best treatment for our patients to provide them with the best outcomes,” said Bob Williams, FMC Cardiac Cath Lab supervisor.

In addition to this award, FMC has received numerous awards for cardiac care, including the Bronze Performance Award from Mission: Lifeline®. The hospital also has been named an Accredited Chest Pain Center by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care.
