Barrett Hospital & HealthCare Receives Honors In Stroke And Cardiac Recognition

Barrett Hospital & HealthCare was recognized with two honors the Stroke Recognition Award and the Cardiac Recognition Award by the Montana Cardiovascular Health Program within the state health department. These awards single out Critical Access Hospitals (CAH) that demonstrate they have the infrastructure and commitment to provide high-quality care for patients with acute stroke and acute coronary syndrome, which includes heart attack. Requirements for the two recognitions include tracking and reporting key stroke and cardiac outcomes, using outcomes data to initiate quality improvement activities, and coordinating regular healthcare provider trainings.

"I am proud to be a part of a healthcare system worthy of these two awards", said Dr. Greg

Moore M.D., Chief Medical Officer at Barrett Hospital & HealthCare. "These designations indicate our Emergency Department’s ability to care for stroke and heart cases, and we are glad to have made an impact on helping to improve the health outcomes of these patients”.

Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability and is a leading cause of death in the Montana.

Last year, over 2,000 Montana families were directly impacted by the devastating effects of

stroke. Heart disease is a leading cause of death in both Montana and the United States. Last

year, over 3,000 Montanans died from the impact of heart disease. Symptom recognition and

timely, high-quality treatment are important factors in reducing death from heart attack, and

disability and death from stroke.
