Mon Health Medical Center Earns Reaccreditation by ACC as a Designated HeartCARE Center, First and Only in WV

Posted Date: 7/7/2021

The American College of Cardiology (ACC) has reaccredited Mon Health Medical Center for the second year in a row as a HeartCARE Center National Distinction of Excellence for 2021. Mon Health Medical Center is the only hospital in West Virginia and is the 24th hospital in the entire country to receive this honor. This distinction is based upon meeting accreditation criteria, through ongoing performance registry reporting, and by providing comprehensive, high-quality cardiovascular care.

Hospitals and health systems that have earned an ACC HeartCARE Center designation have demonstrated their commitment to consistent, high-quality cardiovascular care through process improvement, disease and procedure-specific accreditation, professional excellence, and community engagement.

In the decades that we’ve served our communities, we’ve expanded to become nationally recognized for excellence. Mon Health Heart & Vascular Center is West Virginia’s leader in heart and vascular care. We are the first and only hospital in West Virginia to earn an Atrial Fibrillation (AFib) Accreditation and the only hospital in the region to offer the leading-edge Watchman FLX™ for AFib treatment. In addition, Mon Health Medical Center has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals 2020-21 as High Performing in Heart Failure, we are accredited for Echocardiography and for the ninth year in a row, Mon Health Medical Center received chest pain accreditation from the American College of Cardiology.

“This is truly a monumental achievement,” said Bradford Warden, MD, Executive Director of the Mon Health Heart and Vascular Center. “We are the 24th institution in the country and the only in the state of West Virginia to receive this designation. It's a true representation of the quality and technologically advanced care that we provide to each patient. Being the first and only AFIB (cardiac arrhythmia) accredited hospital, chest pain accredited hospital for nine years in a row, recognized by US News and World Report as high performing, four-star rated CMS hospital and Leapfrog Grade A in safety, it is fitting to be the highest rated heart center group of providers. We are humbled and honored to have such recognition. It represents our dedication to our community and patients that we ensure get the very best, highest quality in a warm, family-oriented environment.”
