Hedrick Medical Center Receives STEMI recognition

Chillicothe’s local hospital, Hedrick Medical Center, has received the American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline® STEMI Referring Center recognition.  Director of Nursing Jennifer Dixon says STEMI is a specific type of heart attack.

Dixon says the Mission: Lifeline Referring Center award is earned by hospitals that demonstrate a commitment to getting patients the most up-to-date research-based care for STEMI as outlined by the American Heart Association.

She says this is primarily in the Emergency Department, but also throughout the facility.
