The Hospitals of Providence (THOP) Sierra Campus in El Paso, Texas, was awarded the Heart Failure Accreditation by the American College of Cardiology (ACC) for demonstrating expertise and commitment in treating patients with heart failure. THOP Sierra Campus is the second hospital in the United States to achieve this accreditation under version three standards, which involved completing a gap analysis, examining variances of care, developing an action plan, and a rigorous onsite review.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 5.7 million adults in the United States have heart failure, which occurs when the heart stops pumping enough blood and oxygen to support the body’s other organs.
“This important accreditation is a result of our team’s hard work and commitment to providing high-quality, compassionate care,” said Monica Vargas-Mahar, CEO of THOP Sierra Campus. “We thank our team for their passion and dedication to our patients and to moving health forward.”
THOP Sierra Campus was awarded Heart Failure Accreditation based the staff’s excellent ability in evaluating, diagnosing and treating patients with heart failure through pre-hospital care, early stabilization, acute care, transitional care and clinical quality measures.
