Sanford Achieves Bronze Award

Posted: Updated:

Sanford Health in Bismarck is being recognized for its achievement.

The hospital received the Mission: Lifeline Bronze Level Recognition Award for the care provided to STEMI patients.

STEMIs are the deadliest form of heart attack.

This award is based on 2012 data and is given to hospitals who meet or exceed all standards of cardiac care.

The Sanford staff is proud of how its hospital personnel work together to meet the needs of every patient.

"We're evaluated from the time of first medical contact until the patient is discharged. So it involves people from registration until discharging including transport, ER, cath lab, cardiologists, hospitalists. It's a team effort and I think that's what we should be proud about," says Dr. Karthik Reddy.

The Bronze Award is given for one full quarter of meeting the criteria.

The next step in achievement is the silver award with four consecutive quarters, and the gold award with 8 consecutive quarters.
