Medical officials at Archbold Memorial Hospital say the facility has been ranked #1 of all hospitals south of Atlanta for its coronary intervention program, which helps prevent heart attacks in patients who show warning signs.
Doctors and staff say they are proud to be part of the top-notch medical institution.
Dr. Clay Sizemore is an interventional cardiologist at Archbold and says, "We're just very excited about it because we've been passionate ... and we're happy that that passion and enthusiasm has translated into some objective measures that really document how well we're doing."
Archbold was rated 6th out of all Georgia hospitals for its CI program.
Staff say 'Georgia Trend' conducted its ranking objectively by comparing categories such as mortality and recovery rates, and patient satisfaction in all Georgia hospitals, then compiled the results.
