Campbell County Health Among Nation’s Top Performing Hospitals for Treatment of Heart Attack Patients

GILLETTE, WY-- Campbell County Health (CCH) has received the American College of Cardiology’s NCDR Chest Pain ̶ MI Registry Platinum Performance Achievement Award for 2022. CCH is one of only 240 hospitals nationwide to receive the honor.

The award recognizes CCH’s commitment and success in implementing a higher standard of care for heart attack patients and signifies that CCH has reached an aggressive goal of treating these patients to standard levels of care as outlined by the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association clinical guidelines and recommendations.

To receive the Chest Pain  ̶  MI Registry Platinum Performance Achievement Award, CCH has demonstrated sustained achievement in the Chest Pain  ̶  MI Registry for two consecutive years (2020 and 2021), and performed at the highest level for specific performance measures. Full participation in the registry engages hospitals in a robust quality improvement process using data to drive improvements in adherence to guideline recommendations and overall quality of care provided to heart attack patients.

“By participating in the American College of Cardiology’s NCDR registry Campbell County Health works to ensure that the care provided to our patients is of the highest quality,” said Nicholas Stamato, MR, FACC, FACCP, FAHA, FHRS, FSCAI, cardiologist at Campbell County Medical Group Cardiology Clinic. “Patients can be assured that programs like ours meet the highest national standards. This Platinum Award means we have demonstrated sustained achievement for the last two years. The entire team—from Emergency Medical Services to the Emergency Department, Cardiac Cath Lab, Cardiac Rehabilitation, Intensive Care Unit, Medical Surgical Unit, and the Cardiology Clinic—takes great pride in this award.”

The Centers for Disease Control estimates that over 800,000 Americans suffer a heart attack each year. A heart attack occurs when a blood clot in a coronary artery partially or completely blocks blood flow to the heart muscle. Treatment guidelines include administering aspirin upon arrival and discharge, timely restoration of blood flow to the blocked artery, smoking cessation counseling and cardiac rehabilitation, among others.

“It is an honor to award CCH with the Platinum Performance Award for their valuable national leadership and dedication to meeting comprehensive performance measures in patient care,” said Michael C. Kontos, MD, FACC, chair of the NCDR Chest Pain – MI Registry Steering Subcommittee, and cardiologist at Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center. “The receipt of this award indicates that Campbell County Health remains committed to providing top quality, guideline-driven care for heart attack patients. Their success ensures patients are receiving the highest quality cardiovascular care.”

CCH’s highly skilled cardiologists are here to provide care for patients at the CCMG Cardiology Clinic, in our cardiac cath lab, and with our Cardiac Rehabilitation program. Call 307-688-3700 or visit to learn more.
