Redding, CA – March 1, 2017 – Shasta Regional Medical Center has been named one of America’s Best Hospitals for Heart Care by the Women’s Choice Award®, America’s trusted referral source for the best in healthcare. The award signifies that Shasta Regional Medical Center is in the top 9% of 4,789 U.S. hospitals offering heart care services.

According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the No. 1 killer of American women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year—approximately one woman every minute. What’s often thought of as a “man’s disease” strikes more women than men, and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined.

The methodology used to select Shasta Regional Medical Center as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Heart Care is unique in that it evaluates:

  • The number of cardiac/vascular services offered. Recognized hospitals must offer at least six of the following services: Cardiac Catheter Lab, Cardiac Rehabilitation, Cardiac Surgery, Carotid Stenting, Coronary Interventions, Electrophysiology, Vascular Interventions, Vascular Surgery and Coronary Intensive Care (CCU).
  • 30-Day mortality and readmission rates for heart attack and failure
  • Patient recommendation ratings on the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) Survey
  • Primary research about women’s healthcare preferences

“Shasta Regional Medical Center has always been a leader in cardiac care in our community, creating a community heart health initiative more than five years ago. Our focus has been simple, provide straight forward information so individuals could easily incorporate small healthy changes in their daily routine and improve their heart health” said Cyndy Gordon, CEO of Shasta Regional Medical Center.
