We are proud to announce we have raised our local survival rate of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) from 12 percent in 2011 to 59.6% in 2019.* We are continually seeking the best practices in medicine for resuscitation and actively review every case for quality improvement. We are also participating in the CARES Registry to measure metrics and HEPA compliant data points to improve survival nationally.
