Springfield Rehab Earns American Heart Association Certification

springfield earns american heart association certification

American Heart Association certification is a certification that less than 1% of SNFs nationally have achieved.  The hospital and patients can have confidence that the SNF(s) have been highly vetted by AHA experts.

Building on its commitment to comprehensive care and services, we  recently earned the American Heart Association’s (AHA’s) new Skilled Nursing Facility Heart Failure Center Certification. Located at 463 West Sproul Road, we provide post-hospital care, memory care, respite care, short-term rehab and long-term residential care.

The world’s leading nonprofit focused on heart and brain health, the AHA has invested more than $4.8 billion in research since its founding. Evaluation criteria for its new skilled nursing certification – earned by less than 1% of skilled nursing facilities nationwide, to date – was designed by heart failure experts. Certification requirements include program management, personnel education, clinical management, care coordination and performance improvement, as well as patient and caregiver education and support.

“This advanced certification provides heart patients with the assurance that Springfield is recognized by the AHA for delivering the most effective heart failure treatment strategies based on a standardized method of current evidence-based guidelines,” said Danielle Koons, senior regional director of market development at Marquis Health Consulting Services.

Beyond the clinical programs, we offer a community resource library of physician-curated content. With 173 skilled nursing beds and personal care units, the campus is in the midst of a multi-million-dollar upgrade.
