Saint Mary's Regional Medical Center is a 380-bed hospital located in downtown Reno.
Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center in downtown Reno was recently awarded the HeartCARE Center National Distinction of Excellence designation from the American College of Cardiology, the only hospital in Nevada to receive the honor.
Facilities that achieve the HeartCARE Center distinction “boldly demonstrate their commitment to superior cardiovascular care by participating in multiple quality improvement initiatives,” according to a Jan. 5 press release, which notes that the designation is the highest recognition given to a hospital by the ACC.
Criteria to meet the designation include participation in specific accreditation programs and targeted quality improvement campaigns that are designed to help hospitals and institutions close gaps in guideline-based care.
“We are proud of what this distinction signifies,” Tiffany Coury, CEO of Saint Mary’s Health Network, said in a statement. “Our physicians, nurses, and staff rank among the highest performers in cardiovascular care nationwide and are proud to provide the very best in clinical care to our patients.”
“Our cardiologists are dedicated to their craft, and relentlessly pursue excellence so patients can trust that the level of cardiovascular care they receive at Saint Mary’s is unrivaled,” Dr. Richard Bryan, a cardiologist and Chief Medical Officer for Saint Mary’s, added.
