Business

While much of the community focus is on COVID-19, heart attack and stroke continue to be major health threats as well. Every year, more than 250,000 people experience an ST- elevation myocardial infarction, known as a STEMI, the deadliest type of heart attack, and according to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, stroke is the number five cause of death in the United States. Doctors Hospital of Sarasota is consistently recognized for quality treatment and recently received the following awards for the hospital’s commitment to meeting specific quality achievement measures: Gold Receiving-Mission: Lifeline® program for heart attacks, Honor Roll Elite -Gold Plus with Target: Stroke and Honor Roll-Target: Type 2 Diabetes from Get With The Guidelines-Stroke® program. “Our ER at Doctors Hospital of Sarasota and Doctors Hospital of Sarasota ER in Lakewood Ranch continue to be open and safe. This recognition underscores the superior care our teams deliver for heart attacks and strokes,” said Robert Meade, CEO of Doctors Hospital of Sarasota.  “If you need emergency care, please don’t delay treatment.”
