The South Carolina Hospital Association is reporting that according to the Hospital Compare website, South Carolina ranks #3 in the nation for the percentage of heart attack patients who receive PCI within 90 minutes of arrival.
1. Minnesota (93%)
2. Vermont (92.9%)
3. South Carolina (90%)
4. Indiana (88%)
5. Massachusetts (88%)
This is an incredible achievement considering the relatively short period of time the SC Chapter of AHA Mission: Lifeline has been actively working toward making regionalized STEMI care a reality in South Carolina!
See my previous post about the effort here.
Congratulations to all of the stakeholders involved with STEMI care in South Carolina!
I can see South Carolina becoming the top regionalized state STEMI system in the country! That’s because we’re really just getting started.
