Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital is proud to announce it has been recertified with The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval® for Chest Pain.
The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization's commitment to providing safe and effective patient care, and recertification is required every two years.
Chest Pain Certification combines a review of Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) and Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) programs into one certification award.
Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital underwent a rigorous on-site review in March 2018. Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with national disease-specific care standards.
Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital has a history of care excellence, as it was first certified by the Joint Commission for Chest Pain in 2016.
