Torrance Memorial Medical Center is Nationally Recognized for its Commitment to Providing High-Quality Cardiovascular Care
TORRANCE, Calif., June 17, 2022 – Torrance Memorial Medical Center has received five American Heart Association Get With The Guidelines and Mission: Lifeline achievement awards for demonstrating commitment to following up-to-date research-based guidelines for the treatment of heart disease and stroke, ultimately leading to more lives saved, shorter recovery times and fewer readmissions to the hospital.
Our physicians, nurses and staff have worked to close the gaps separating patients from timely access to appropriate treatments. Our commitment to quality patient care is our #1 priority and we are proud to be recognized for Gold Plus performance in Heart Failure, Stoke and STEMI Receiving, Gold in Resuscitation and this year NSTEMI Silver.
“We are pleased to recognize Torrance Memorial Medical Center for its commitment to caring for those in their community who need cardiovascular care,” said John Warner, M.D., FAHA, past president of the American Heart Association and executive vice president for health system affairs at UT Southwestern Medical Center, in Dallas. “Hospitals that follow the American Heart Association’s quality improvement protocols often see improved patient outcomes, fewer readmissions and lower mortality rates – a win for health care systems, families and communities.”
