The Maui Memorial Medical Center has received an award from the American Heart Association for reaching goals in treating patients with heart failure.

This marks the fourth year that the facility has been recognized with the Gold Plus quality achievement award.

Hospital officials say the program’s guidelines help staff develop and implement a process for acute and secondary prevention and ultimately reduce healthcare costs by lowering the recurrence of heart attacks.

“MMMC is dedicated to making our care for heart failure patients among the best in the country and implementing the American Heart Association’s Get With The Guidelines–Heart Failure program will help us accomplish this goal by making it easier for our professionals to improve the long-term outcome for these patients,” said Carol Clark, director of communications, in a press release.

Officials with the Get With The Guidelines National Steering Committee say the goal of the program is to help hospitals implement appropriate evidence-based care and protocols aimed at reducing disability and the number of deaths in patients.
