JFK Medical Center Earns HeartCARE Distinction for Commitment to HighQuality Cardiac Program

What you need to know

The American College of Cardiology (ACC) has designated JFK Medical Center as a HeartCARE Center: National Distinction of Excellence program, which recognizes the hospital for its commitment to a comprehensive high-quality cardiac culture.

JFK Medical Center is the first and only hospital in New Jersey with this honor.

Hospitals can achieve this designation, which is the highest recognition given to a hospital by the ACC, by meeting a set of criteria that can be realized through participation in ACC’s existing suite of quality improvement programs. Criteria includes participation in specific accreditation programs, NCDR registries and targeted quality improvement campaigns, such as Patient Navigator Program: Focus MI, that are designed to help hospitals and institutions close gaps in guideline-based care.
