NEWBERG — Providence Newberg Medical Center just received a national award from the American Heart Association for heart attack patient care. It is one of eight hospitals in the country to earn the award.
Each year in the United States, nearly 300,000 people have severe heart attacks. Hospitals on the list meet high standards for quickly diagnosing patients and transferring them to hospitals that provide artery-opening procedures.
