Broward Health Medical Center Designated an Aetna (Institute of Quality® / Institute of Excellence™)


Broward Health Medical Center has been designated an Aetna Institute of
Quality® (IOQ) Cardiac Care Facility for the Cardiac Medical
Intervention, Rhythm and Surgery programs for comprehensive heart and
vascular treatment.

Aetna makes information about the quality and cost of health care
services available to its members to help them make informed decisions
about their health care needs. In line with this goal, Aetna recognizes
hospitals and facilities in its network that offer specialized clinical
services for certain health conditions. Facilities are selected IOQ for
consistently delivering evidence-based, safe care.

"This designation validates our continuous commitment to quality patient
care," said Beverly Capasso, President/CEO of Broward Health. "We are
pleased to be recognized as a hospital that consistently provides
high-quality and high-value cardiovascular care, a testament to the
dedication of our physicians and staff."

Broward Health Medical Center, a leader in cardiovascular care, has been
distinguished as one of the nation's top centers for cardiovascular
treatment and provides comprehensive clinical, surgical and
rehabilitative care. The hospital offers a wide range of tests and
procedures to diagnose and treat cardiac and vascular conditions,
providing an individualized approach to identifying cardiac risk factors
while offering a quick assessment of symptoms.

Broward Health was the first health care system in Broward County to
offer patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF), an
alternative to long-term warfarin medication, with the newly approved
WATCHMAN Left Atrial Appendage Closure (LAAC) Implant. In addition, it
is the only health system in Broward County offering patient-friendly
imaging by The SOMATOM® Definition Flash, one of the fastest
computed tomography (or CT) scanners available today.
