UnityPoint Health – Trinity Bettendorf has received the American College of Cardiology’s NCDR Chest Pain ̶ MI Registry Platinum Performance Achievement Award for 2022. Trinity Bettendorf is one of only 240 hospitals nationwide to receive the honor.
To receive the Chest Pain ̶ MI Registry Platinum Performance Achievement Award, Trinity Bettendorf has demonstrated sustained achievement in the Chest Pain ̶ MI Registry for two consecutive years (2020 and 2021), and performed at the highest level for specific performance measures.

UnityPoint Health – Trinity Rock Island received the American College of Cardiology’s NCDR Chest Pain ̶ MI Registry Silver Performance Achievement Award for 2022. Trinity Rock Island is one of only 85 hospitals nationwide to receive the honor.
To receive the Chest Pain ̶ MI Registry Silver Performance Achievement Award, Trinity Rock Island has demonstrated sustained achievement in the Chest Pain ̶ MI Registry for four consecutive quarters during 2021 and performed with distinction in specific performance measures.

Full participation in the registry engages hospitals in a robust quality improvement process using data to drive improvements in adherence to guideline recommendations and overall quality of care provided to heart attack patients.

“It is an honor to award UnityPoint Health – Trinity with the Platinum and Silver Performance Awards for their valuable national leadership and dedication to meeting comprehensive performance measures in patient care,” says Michael C. Kontos, MD, FACC, chair of the NCDR Chest Pain – MI Registry Steering Subcommittee, and cardiologist at Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center. “This award indicates Trinity remains committed to providing top quality, guideline-driven care for heart attack patients.”

“Receiving this recognition – particularly during a pandemic – is a testament to the hard work, commitment, and professionalism of our highly-skilled team members who care for those who are experiencing a heart event. We are honored to be recognized for the hard work that our staff and doctors put in every day to take care of the community,” said Kathy Pulley, Director of Cardiology Services at UnityPoint Health – Trinity.

The Centers for Disease Control estimates that over 800,000 Americans suffer a heart attack each year. A heart attack occurs when a blood clot in a coronary artery partially or completely blocks blood flow to the heart muscle. Treatment guidelines include administering aspirin upon arrival and discharge, timely restoration of blood flow to the blocked artery, smoking cessation counseling and cardiac rehabilitation, among others.

“UnityPoint Health – Trinity has established itself as a leader in heart care, setting the national standard for improving quality of care in patients with a demonstrated commitment to providing reliable, comprehensive treatment for heart attack patients. This award affirms we deliver the highest quality of cardiovascular care to transform heart health in the Quad Cities,” says Pulley.
