Houston Methodist The Woodlands Nationally Recognized for Excellence in Cardiac Care
THE WOODLANDS, TX -- Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital has earned national recognition for cardiac care from the American College of Cardiology. Demonstrating expertise and commitment to treating patients receiving transcatheter valve repair, Houston Methodist The Woodlands was recently awarded Transcatheter Valve Certification based on evaluation of the staff’s ability to meet standards for multidisciplinary teams, formalized training, shared decision-making and registry performance.
“This latest recognition demonstrates to our patients that our high standards and expectations of our expert physicians and staff are deeply committed to providing the latest in innovative heart procedures,” said Debbie Sukin, regional senior vice president, Houston Methodist, and CEO of Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital. “I am proud of our clinical team for achieving this important accreditation and continued commitment to our mission of unparalleled care.”
With this accreditation, HMTW accesses a comprehensive suite of cardiac accreditation services designed to optimize patient outcomes. The certification uses established national clinical measures to support clinical decisions and links process improvement to patient outcomes. Hospitals that achieve Transcatheter Valve Certification learn best practices for implementing evidence-based medicine to support patient-centered decision-making and can track key performance metrics to better identify opportunities for improvement.
The ACC’s Transcatheter Valve Certification is an external review and certification process that pairs with established national clinical databases to monitor patient safety and real-world outcomes related to transcatheter valve therapies.
