St. Elizabeth Health Center received an award Thursday morning for its work to improve care for heart attack patients.

The American Heart Association presented the hospital with its Mission Lifeline Bronze Award.

The hospital streamlined procedures to keep EMS providers, cardiologists all the way up to hospital administrators on the same page for patients who suffer the deadliest form of heart attacks.

“And the amount of care that the community is receiving because of it is quick and monumental,” said Mariann Pacak, the director of heart and vascular services at St. Elizabeth. “We’ve had different things happen within our community that is really story-telling material.”
