Umm Al Quwain: One of the most renowned healthcare institutions in the region, Sheikh Khalifa General Hospital (SKGH) at Umm Al Quwain, a President’s Initiative Hospital managed by a subsidiary of PureHealth, has been awarded the Chest Pain Centre Certification from the American Heart Association (AHA).
The Chest Pain Center Certification is intended to assist institutions in developing a comprehensive and team-based approach to cardiovascular care. The program hopes to improve outcomes for individuals with cardiovascular disease (CVD) by offering patients accredited care.
A coordinated dedication by the hospital’s management and staff, as well as organized systems of care regarding standardized assessment, identification, monitoring, management, and performance improvement in the Emergency Department in accordance with the best international practices and protocols, led to the SKGH Umm Al Quwain’s successful certification.
The certification was granted after an inspection by the AHA accreditation team to make sure the healthcare institution maintains high standards for medical care, provides emergency room patients with prompt care until they are no longer in danger, and continuously improves the quality of cardiovascular care to improve outcomes and survival from cardiovascular disease.
“The successful Chest Pain Centre Certification to the SKGH Umm Al Quwain is a major endorsement of world-class cardiac care available at our hospital. We are extremely proud of the management, physicians, and staff of the SKGH Umm Al Quwain for their dedication and commitment to acquiring this certification, which will lead to better patient care and improved health outcomes.” the CEO added.
