Hospitals of Providence Sierra Campus Receives Advanced Certification for Comprehensive Stroke Center

On Wednesday it was announced that the Hospitals of Providence Sierra Campus, had earned recognition as meeting the guidelines required for treatment of the most serious stroke events.

“Being designated a Comprehensive Stroke Center is a monumental achievement for the Sierra Campus,” said Nicholas Tejeda, Market Chief Executive Officer for The Hospitals of Providence.  “We are absolutely committed to providing the highest level of care and treatment to stroke patients – patients who could be our neighbors, friends and family.  I commend every member of our dedicated team for their steadfast focus to delivering the care that enabled the Sierra Campus to earn this designation.”

The Comprehensive Stroke Center Certification, granted by the accrediting agency DNV, recognizes hospitals that have met specific metrics in the full spectrum of stroke care including, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and education.

Officials with the hospital share that Comprehensive Stroke Centers offer state-of-the-art infrastructure, staff and training to receive and treat patients with the most complex strokes.  Being recognized as a Comprehensive Stroke Center is the highest level of stroke certification available.

“When a stroke occurs, where you go and how fast you get there matters.  Having trained specialists on-site, 24/7 with the expertise to treat the most complex of stroke cases, ensures better outcomes for our patients and their recovery.” said Dr. Rakesh Khatri, Assistant Professor in the department of Neurology at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, specializing in Vascular Neurology and Interventional Neurology and current Medical Director for Comprehensive Stroke Services at Sierra Campus.

“This has been a result of tremendous collaboration among multiple disciplines and a vision to improve stroke care in the community.”

Strokes are the fifth leading cause of death in America and a leading cause of adult disability as noted by The National Stroke Association. Stroke is a brain attack occurring when blood flow to the brain is cut off, causing brain cells to be deprived of oxygen and begin to die.  A stroke can cause permanent loss of speech, movement, and memory.

The Sierra Campus offers a comprehensive program to provide and care for stroke patients through the entire treatment plan.  From the time a stroke patient arrives in the emergency room, a dedicated team is ready to begin life-saving care.

The Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit provides stroke patients with advanced rehabilitative care and expertise to promote recovery and increase functionality.

Additionally, the Sierra Campus continuously offers stroke prevention education to the community through various community events and hosts a Stroke Support Group for caregivers and survivors the second Wednesday of every month.

In addition to its certification for comprehensive stroke, Sierra Campus was recently recognized with the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award.  The Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit also celebrated the accreditation by the Commission Accreditation of Rehab Facilities (CARF).

Hospitals of Providence Sierra Campus Earns Heart Failure Accreditation

The Hospitals of Providence Sierra Campus is one of only two hospitals in the country to receive recognition from the American College of Cardiology (ACC) under new, more rigorous standards for treating patients suffering from heart failure.

“ACC Accreditation Services is proud to bestow Heart Failure Accreditation on Sierra Campus,” said Abraham Joseph, Vice President of ACC Accreditation Services. “We commend Sierra Campus for its demonstrated leadership and commitment to providing El Paso area patients with excellent care of heart failure patients.”

Sierra Campus was awarded Heart Failure Accreditation in October, 2017 based on on-site review of the staff’s ability to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients with heart failure through pre-hospital care, early stabilization, acute care, transitional care, clinical quality measures and more.

Heart failure is a condition where the heart is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs for blood and oxygen. Hospitals that employ an evidence-based, protocol-driven and systematic approach to managing heart failure have been able to reduce time to treatment, and are able to identify and predict high-risk patients while also reducing length-of- stay and hospital re-admissions.

Hospitals receiving Heart Failure Accreditation from the ACC must take part in a multi-faceted clinical process that involves: completing a gap analysis; examining variances of care, developing an action plan; a rigorous onsite review; and monitoring for sustained success.

Improved methods and strategies of caring for patients include streamlining processes, implementing of guidelines and standards, and adopting best practices in the precise care of heart failure patients.

Facilities that achieve accreditation meet or exceed an array of stringent criteria and have organized a team of doctors, nurses, clinicians, and other administrative staff that earnestly support the efforts leading to better patient education, improved patient outcomes, and more effective and efficient disease control.

“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 Sierra Campus.” We thank our team for their passion and dedication to our patients and to moving health forward.”

The ACC and American Heart Association are collaborating to offer U.S. hospitals like Sierra Campus access to a comprehensive suite of co-branded cardiac accreditation services designed to optimize patient outcomes and improve hospital financial performance.

These services are focused on all aspects of cardiac care, including heart failure.
