    This award recognizes our commitment and success in implementing a higher standard of STEMI care by ensuring that STEMI patients receive treatment according to nationally accepted standards and recommendations. A STEMI (ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction) is a deadly type of heart attack, which is identified on an EKG. Early treatment to the blocked coronary artery minimizes the extent of the heart muscle damage and preserves the pumping function of the heart, thereby, increasing survival and reducing or eliminating complications.
