We are proud to be the region’s only Comprehensive Cardiac Center, certified by The Joint Commission. For our patients, this means you are connected to the region’s most clinically sophisticated heart, lung and vascular services.
This certification was granted through a rigorous, in-depth evaluation of patient-centered care. Southeast Hospital is one of only a few hospitals in the nation and one of the smallest community hospital to achieve this recognition to date.
In order to obtain CCC Certification, the organization was required to show excellence and exceed quality measurements in at least seven of the following areas:
- Coronary Artery Bypass
- Heart Failure
- Cardiac Arrest/Resuscitation
- Cardiac Rehabilitation
- Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterization Procedure
- Valve Replacement/Repair
- Percutaneous Coronary Intervention
- Arrhythmia Management
- Acute Myocardial Infarction (heart attack)
"To be singled out as one of the nation’s top centers for cardiac care required a spirit of commitment and teamwork across the entire staff. Earning this honor required a great deal of work, commitment and expertise on our part, and it was the right thing to do for our patients. They expect, and deserve, exceptional care."
-Maria Sudak, VP and Chief Operating Officer, SoutheastHEALTH
