Awards and Recognition

the joint commission national quality approval awardThe Joint Commission recently recognized Hendrick Medical Center with certification for our Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) Program. The program focuses on the adult population of patients diagnosed with a heart attack. Achievement of this certification signifies the organization’s dedication to providing quality care to our patients. Hendrick Medical Center serves patients from the surrounding 19 counties. The program recently underwent a rigorous on-site review in May of 2019. A Joint Commission expert reviewed our compliance with the requirements for the Joint Commission’s Disease-Specific Care Certification programs. Hendrick received its initial Chest Pain Center with PCI Accreditation in 2011.

Our AMI program combines the efforts of the Hendrick Emergency Department with the Abilene Fire Department, as well as facilities and emergency services from the surrounding area. The program's processes begin before the patient arrives at Hendrick and continues throughout the patient's stay, including the patient's transition home.

The program focus is to promote health by following guideline-directed medical therapy, encouraging timely follow-up after hospitalization, adherence to prescribed medication therapy and participating in Cardiac Rehab after discharge. Our multidisciplinary team is committed to providing quality care to our patients.
