Medical Center receives “Gold Plus” award for heart care - join the celebration

Mount Nittany Medical Center is proud to announce that we have received the Get With The Guidelines® Heart Failure Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award from the American Heart Association for 2012.

Get With The Guidelines® is a national quality improvement program based on the latest care guidelines recommended by the American Heart Association/American College of Medicine.

This award demonstrates that we treat heart failure patients according to these evidence-based guidelines, which have been shown to improve the quality of care for heart failure patients, save lives and reduce healthcare costs by lowering the recurrence of heart attacks.

While last year Mount Nittany Medical Center received the Silver Plus award, 2012 is the first year we have received the Gold Plus award, the highest Get with the Guidelines® award designation. Our Gold Plus award reflects our hospital-wide commitment to improving our quality of care and our dedication to Mount Nittany Health's mission to make lives healthier.
