Officials with the Hospitals of Providence announced Monday that their Sierra Campus has once again earned the HeartCARE Center National Distinction of Excellence. This is the highest cardiology designation possible by the American College of Cardiology (ACC).
“While our team has been committed to responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, they never lost sight of our continued commitment to provide the highest-quality cardiovascular care,” said Rob J. Anderson, Chief Executive Officer for The Hospitals of Providence Sierra Campus.
“I commend our team for their unrelenting efforts to earn such a distinguished recognition placing them among a select group of elite hospitals and teams that go above and beyond to ensure the best patient outcomes in heart care.”
This makes Sierra Campus one of 31 hospitals in the U.S., and the only hospital in El Paso, to both achieve and maintain this designation for the third year in a row.
“Now more than ever we are encouraging our community to not delay their heart care needs – our team is here and committed to providing high-quality care, in a safe environment and close to home,” said Anderson.
Hospitals receiving the HeartCARE Center designation from the ACC have demonstrated their commitment to consistent, high-quality cardiovascular care through comprehensive process improvement, disease and procedure-specific accreditation, professional excellence, and community engagement.
Hospital officials share that the cardiovascular epicenter for The Hospitals of Providence, the Sierra Campus continues to expand heart care services for the El Paso region offering the latest in advanced heart care procedures and pulmonary valve replacements.
“The Sierra Campus offers a comprehensive cardiovascular care program from diagnosis to rehab with a Cardio Nurse Navigator to navigate patients throughout their journey and by coordinating patient’s healthcare needs and answering questions along the way. The on-site Cardiac Rehabilitation Program helps patients continue their healing after a procedure,” officials added.
The Sierra Campus is the only hospital in El Paso to also be recognized with the Heart Failure Accreditation and the Cath Lab Accreditation by the American College of Cardiology.
