Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare, which includes Las Palmas Medical Center and Del Sol Medical Center, was recently recognized by both the American Stroke Association and the American Heart Association for its commitment to—and success in—ensuring patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines.

For the second year in a row, Las Palmas Medical Center received the Heart Failure Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award, which recognizes the hospital’s commitment to ensuring heart failure patients receive the most appropriate treatment.

“Our goal is to treat each heart failure patient with the highest quality of care,” Jerry Gonzalez, chief nursing officer at Las Palmas Medical Center, said. “Receiving this award affirms Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare works very hard to ensure these guidelines are met throughout the year.”

Del Sol Medical Center received the Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award by meeting specific quality achievement measures for the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients at a set level for a designated period. These measures include stroke treatments aimed at reducing death and disability.

Additionally, Del Sol Medical Center achieved the Target Stroke Elite Plus award. This award underscores the hospital’s commitment to meeting quality measures developed to reduce the time between the patient’s arrival at the hospital and treatment methods.

“Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare hospitals know that with strokes, every second counts,” Annie Garcia, chief nursing officer at Del Sol Medical Center, said. “The hospital strives to implement the best technology and provide our patients with the best resources so that each patient has the best possible outcome.”

These guidelines, called Get with the Guidelines®, have impacted more than three million patients since 2003 by helping hospital care teams provide quality care.
