Piedmont Medical Center was recently selected as the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines® Distinguished Hospital of the Year.” The award was presented by the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control.

The award was announced at DHEC’s 11th Annual Diabetes/Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Winter Symposium in Myrtle Beach earlier this month.

This award is presented to a hospital that has made significant contributions in quality of care for patients with cardiovascular disease and stroke.

Only one South Carolina hospital is selected annually.

“We have worked hard to ensure that we are providing quality care to our cardiovascular and stroke patients,” said Bill Masterton, CEO of Piedmont Medical Center.

“Receiving this award confirms that we are making strides in offering appropriate treatments for our patients. Our team of healthcare professionals is thrilled that DHEC recognizes our efforts in this way,” Masterton said.
