CCH receives top award for cardiac care

GILLETTE, Wyo. — Campbell County Health was recently awarded for its quality of care and adherence to guideline recommendations in cardiac care, the healthcare organization announced Sept. 29. 

The platinum award is the highest offered through the American College of Cardiology’s NCDR Chest Pain-MI Registry, and is the direct result of cooperative efforts across CCH, according to a Sept. 29 news release. 

“CCMH’s Emergency Department, Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory, Cardiac Rehab, ICU, Med/Surg, and the CCMG Cardiology Clinic have worked hard to gain and maintain this distinction,” CCH said in the release. 

To obtain the Platinum Performance Achievement Award, hospitals need to demonstrate sustained high performance in critical areas of heart attack and chest pain care in accordance with NCDR Chest Pain-MI Registry, per CCH, which says these areas include timely diagnosis, effective treatment and improved patient outcomes. 

“We are the only hospital in Wyoming to receive the Platinum Performance Award this year,” said Alyssa Blazek, CCH Cardiac Cath Lab manager. “Patients don’t have to travel far for award-winning and world-class cardiac care — it’s right here in Gillette.”

Per the release, CCH has won the award for the last three years and remains committed to advancing cardiac care and continuing to reach toward its vision to be the healthcare provider choice across Wyoming. 

“We are proud of our Cath Lab and all the departments across the organization that come together to deliver exceptional care,” Dr. Nicholas Stamato, CCH cardiologist, said in the release.
