Recognized for Outstanding Care
Floyd is committed to continually improving the care that we provide. To help us do that, we work with accrediting agencies and quality organizations to measure our standard of care and stay on the forefront of heart care innovations. This ensures that we are following best practices so that our patients can experience the best possible outcomes. And, we have received state and national recognition for our efforts:
Emergency Cardiac Care Center
Floyd Medical Center is a designated Level II Emergency Cardiac Care Center by the Georgia Department of Public Health. We offer effective cardiac care for patients suffering a heart attack, including cardiac catheterization and angioplasty procedures. We can quickly and safely transport patients needing a higher level of care to an appropriate facility.
Accredited Chest Pain Center
Floyd Medical Center is accredited by the American College of Cardiology as a Chest Pain Center with Primary PCI (Percutaneous Coronary Intervention) with Resuscitation. That means that when you come to our emergency room with chest pain, you can be assured that our heart cath lab is ready to quickly diagnose and treat the cause and get you on the road to recovery.
Polk Medical Center also is recognized as a Chest Pain Center by the American College of Cardiology. Hospitals that have earned accreditation have proven their expertise in evaluating, diagnosing and treating people who are experiencing heart attack symptoms.
Advanced Certification in Heart Failure
A heart failure diagnosis is a signal to the patient and to our staff that special care is required. Advanced Certification in Heart Failure from The Joint Commission recognizes that both Floyd Medical Center and Polk Medical Center have programs in place to reduce stress on our patients' hearts while supporting self-management through education and medical expertise.
Heart Failure Gold Award
The Get With The Guidelines® Gold Quality Achievement Award for Heart Failure recognizes that Floyd Medical Center's program follows specific quality improvement measures outlined by the American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology Foundation's secondary prevention guidelines for patients with heart failure.
