When Minutes Matter

CMC recognized for care in critical situations

Published 6/25/2019

CMC is proud to announce it was recently verified as a Level Photo3_Trauma-certification525.jpgIII Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma. The verification recognizes CMC’s dedication to providing the best possible care for injured patients.

CMC also received two distinctions for stroke care—it was Photo4_TJC_AHA_Primary_Stroke_color_logo_final.jpgrecertified as a Primary Stroke Center by The Joint Commission and received the highest-level recognition possible from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, a Get With The Guidelines® Gold Plus quality award with Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus. A Stroke Honor Roll hospital is one that has excellent track records of administering clot-busting drugs to stroke patients within an hour of their arrival at the hospital.

The strength of CMC’s stroke program is built on collaborations with EMS partners, many of whom participate in an innovative telehealth program that allows ambulance crews to connect with a neurosurgeon while still en route to the hospital.

“Catholic Medical Center is known for its life-saving cardiac care,” said CMC Vice President of Clinical Programs Lu Mulla. “With these recognitions for stroke care, and our Level III Trauma verification, residents in Greater Manchester can trust that CMC has the resources and expertise that make a difference when minutes matter.”

CMC was also honored to be one of three New Hampshire hospitals recognized earlier this year on Newsweek Magazine’s first-ever World’s Best Hospitals list, ranked 135 out of 226 in the U.S.
