Accredited Chest Pain Center
Spring Valley Hospital is nationally recognized by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). PCI, also known as coronary angioplasty, is a procedure in which stenotic (narrowed) coronary arteries of the heart are opened with small balloons threaded through an artery. The Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care's goal is to reduce mortality from heart attacks by teaching the public to recognize and react to the early symptoms of a heart attack and to reduce the time that it takes to receive treatment.
Primary Stroke Center
Spring Valley Hospital was the first in southwest Las Vegas to be certified as an Advanced Primary Stroke Center by The Joint Commission. The Joint Commission's Certificate of Distinction for Advanced Primary Stroke Centers recognizes centers that make exceptional efforts to foster better outcomes for stroke care. To achieve certification for one year, stroke centers must demonstrate that they comply with standards, clinical practice guidelines and performance measurement activities. To maintain certification, a stroke center must attest to continued compliance with standards and evidence of performance measurement and improvement activities each year, pass an on-site review conducted every two years by The Joint Commission and complete a bi-annual submission of an acceptable assessment of compliance by the organization.
Spring Valley Hospital was also recognized by the American Stroke Association/American Heart Association with the 'Get With the Guidelines Gold Plus Quality Achievement' and 'Target: Stroke Elite Honor Roll Award.' The award recognizes the hospital's commitment and success ensuring that stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines based on the latest scientific evidence.
An Efficient Emergency Department
Spring Valley Hospital's EMS Triage Room and Service helps improve the patient experience by minimizing wait times. With this service, patient intake and assessment time can be reduced to as little as five minutes, which speeds the time to treatment.
Fast Track is an area of the Emergency Department in which people with non-life-threatening conditions, such as strains, sprains, cold or flu, can get the care they need more quickly than in the main ED area.
ER Reserve lets you request a time (up to 12 hours in advance) in the ER for non-life-threatening injuries or illnesses such as:
- Sore throat
- Cough or cold
- Muscle strains and sprains
