Commonwealth Health Emergency Medical Services has received the American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline EMS Silver Award for implementing quality improvement measures for the treatment of patients who experience severe heart attacks.

Mission: Lifeline’s EMS recognition program recognizes emergency responders for their efforts in improving STEMI systems of care and improving the quality of life for these patients. Agencies that receive the Mission: Lifeline Silver award have demonstrated at least 75 percent compliance for each required achievement measure for the entire year, and treat at least eight STEMI patients for the year.

CHEMS officials are, from left: Carmen Passaniti, assistant operations manager; Robert Rutkowski, clinical operations manager; Joe Moran, operations manager; Gene Lesneski, pre-hospital care coordinator and Gary McIntyre, director of operations.
