American College of Cardiology Advanced Heart Failure Accreditation
If you or someone you care for has been diagnosed with heart failure, we can provide the tools to improve quality of life. Sovah Health - Martinsville has now earned Advanced Heart Failure Accreditation from the American College of Cardiology. We were awarded the accreditation based on rigorous onsite review of the staff's ability to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients with heart failure through pre-hospital care, early stabilization, acute care, transitional care, clinical quality measures and more.
Duke Telestroke Network
Every second counts – especially when it comes to stroke care. our emergency department has partnered with the Duke TeleStroke Network to provide fast, real time access to Duke Medicine’s nationally recognized team of neurologists and stroke care specialists via real-time, telemedicine based technology.
When a patient showing signs and symptoms of a stroke enters the emergency room, neurology specialists at Duke can communicate with Sovah Health - Martinsville's emergency room team, examine the patient, review imaging reports, confirm a diagnosis and provided recommendations for treatment, just as if they were at the bedside. The technology uses a five-foot life sized robot named “Lightning McBot”, which assists in providing a thorough examination with the most immediate and best treatment plan for the patient.
Recognize the Symptoms:
Two of the most common life-treatening emergencies are heart attacks and strokes. Timely treatment is crucial!
