EL PASO, Texas — The Hospitals of Providence Sierra Campus has once again earned the HeartCARE Center National Distinction of Excellence. This is the highest cardiology designation possible by the American College of Cardiology (ACC). This makes Sierra Campus one of only 42 hospitals in the U.S., and the only hospital in El Paso and the surrounding area, to both achieve and maintain this designation for the fifth year in a row.
Hospitals receiving the HeartCARE Center designation from the ACC have demonstrated their commitment to consistent, high-quality cardiovascular care through comprehensive process improvement, disease and procedure-specific accreditation, professional excellence, and community engagement.
“This is an incredible achievement once again by our team to earn and maintain this designation,” said Erik Cazares, Chief Executive Officer for The Hospitals of Providence Sierra Campus. “Being recognized as only 1 of 42 hospitals in the nation achieving this honor truly shows the quality of care our team provides and our commitment to advancing cardiovascular services for this region.”
The cardiovascular epicenter for The Hospitals of Providence, the Sierra Campus continues to expand heart care services for the El Paso region offering the latest in advanced heart care procedures and pulmonary valve replacements. The Sierra Campus offers a comprehensive cardiovascular care program from diagnosis to rehab with a Cardio Nurse Navigator to navigate patients throughout their journey and by coordinating patient’s healthcare needs and answering questions along the way. The on-site Cardiac Rehabilitation Program helps patients continue their healing after a procedure.
“As the first hospital in the region to build a Structural Heart Program with a dedicated Structural Heart Team, we are proud to be offering patients the advanced heart care procedures they need close to home,” said Cazares.
