Health

When a person is having chest pains, it is very important to go to the nearest Emergency Room as soon as possible. Residents of Washington, Westmoreland and Fayette counties can feel secure in the knowledge that they will receive the highest level of coronary care at Monongahela Valley Hospital (MVH).

MVH recently received reaccreditation to the Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI)Program from Corazon, Inc., a national leader in services for the cardiovascular specialty. Formerly known as angioplasty with stent, PCI is a non-surgical procedure that uses a catheter to place a small stent to open blood vessels in the heart that have been narrowed by plaque buildup. The accreditation proves that the program at MVH has once again met or exceeded the requirements established by the Pennsylvania Department of Health (PA DOH), in accordance with the procedures finalized in September of 2015, such as providing 24-hour coverage for PCI emergencies, undergoing detailed quarterly quality reviews to ensure outcomes and practices meet or exceed national standards and other such factors.

In reaccrediting MVH, Corazon wrote, “Monongahela Valley Hospital has demonstrated through their accreditation survey that they are committed to providing the highest quality level of care to their patient community. Their dedication, hard work and exceptional leadership have afforded this opportunity in engaging their entire hospital team, enhancing their cardiac service line, thus allowing them to excel through achieving this accreditation.”

The reaccreditation to the PCI Program is the latest distinction for MVH’s coronary capabilities. Earlier this year, the Hospital was named “One of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Coronary Intervention” by Healthgrades® and a “Best Hospital in Heart Failure” by U.S. News & World Report. MVH also earned the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Get With the Guidelines® Heart Failure Silver Quality Achievement Award and its Mission: Lifeline Silver Receiving Quality Achievement Award.
