Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital is nationally recognized by the American Heart Association for its commitment to providing high-quality stroke and STEMI care.

Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital is nationally recognized by the American Heart Association for its commitment to providing high-quality stroke and STEMI care.

Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital (MBSH) was recently recognized with two distinguished quality achievement awards from the American Heart Association:

  1. the 2022 Get With The Guidelines® - Stroke ‘Silver Plus’ quality achievement award for its commitment to ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines, ultimately leading to more lives saved and reduced disability.
  2. the 2022 Mission: Lifeline® – STEMI Referring Center ‘Silver Plus’ quality achievement award for its continued success in applying the most up-to-date evidence-based treatment guidelines to improve patient care and outcomes in the community.

“We’re committed to improving patient care by adhering to the latest treatment guidelines,” said Lisa Lochner, president of MBSH. “The American Heart Association’s Get With The Guidelines and Mission: Lifeline programs make it easier for our teams to put proven knowledge and guidelines to work on a daily basis, which studies show can help patients recover better. The end goal is to ensure more people in our community can experience longer, healthier lives.”

Get With The Guidelines (GWTG) puts the expertise of the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association to work for hospitals nationwide, helping ensure patient care is aligned with the latest research- and evidence-based guidelines. Get With The Guidelines - Stroke is an in-hospital program for improving stroke care by promoting consistent adherence to these guidelines, which can minimize the long-term effects of a stroke and even prevent death.

Each year, GWTG program participants qualify for the award by demonstrating how their organization has committed to providing quality care for stroke patients. In addition to following treatment guidelines, GWTG participants also educate patients to help them better manage their health and recovery at home.

“We’re incredibly pleased to recognize Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital for its commitment to caring for patients with stroke,” said Steven Messe, M.D., chairperson of the Stroke System of Care Advisory Group. “Participation in Get With The Guidelines is associated with improved patient outcomes, fewer readmissions, and lower mortality rates – a win for health care systems, families, and communities.”

Mission: Lifeline is a national, community-based initiative improving systems of care for patients with STEMI, NSTEMI, stroke and out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. The program focuses on streamlining processes to speed the delivery of proper treatment for time sensitive cerebro-cardiovascular disease states. Mission: Lifeline Referring Hospital recognition is designed to showcase hospitals at the front line – who do not have 24 x 7 cardiac cath lab availability, but work within the regional system, in collaboration with Emergency Medical Services to provide and/or transport patients for guideline directed STEMI and NSTEMI care. Hospitals of every size have a role in the System of Care.

STEMI Referring Hospitals, like MBSH, earn Silver recognition for achieving 75 percent or higher compliance on all applicable Mission: Lifeline STEMI Referring Center quality achievement measures for a 12-month interval to improve the quality of care for STEMI patients.

Congratulations to the entire team at MBSH on these outstanding achievements!
