Each year the American Heart Association recognizes EMS provider organizations that serve and/or jointly serve their community through the Lifeline Quality Achievement Awards program. The awards are provided for applying the most up-to-date evidence-based treatment guidelines to improve patient care and outcomes in the community served. For 2019, Ohio topped the list of award winners for the first time. You can find the list here.
Congratulations to the award winners. We appreciate your efforts improving pre-hospital care and outcomes for STEMI, stroke and out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
