In awarding this recognition the American Heart Association stated that it recognizes Saint Clare’s Denville for its continued success in using the Mission: Lifeline® program. “Thank you for applying the most up-to-date evidence-based treatment guidelines to improve patient care and outcomes in the community you serve.”
