Know Before You Go
Award-winning hospitals and EMS agencies near you
This list should not be used to find a hospital during a critical situation. If you are experiencing heart attack or stroke symptoms, call 9-1-1 immediately!
For the past 20 years we have worked with healthcare providers across the nation, supplying their care teams with the latest clinical treatment guidelines, with the goal of helping them provide their patients with quality care. Check out the searchable map below to learn more about hospitals and EMS agencies that participate in our quality improvement programs, including facilities recognized for meeting American Heart Association criteria for consistently following guidelines.
The facilities identified on this website have received recognition for achievement in a designated American Heart Association (AHA) healthcare quality improvement program. These facilities do not constitute an endorsement by AHA, nor should the absence of a hospital or agencies name on the map be construed as a negative reflection of the quality of their cardiovascular and stroke care. This map is updated periodically but is not intended to be a definitive list. The website is not intended for use in making medical decisions. Discuss hospital options with your physician to select the best hospital for you.
This map lists hospitals participating in a designated AHA program. This map does not include hospitals engaged or involved in other quality improvement recognition, certification, licensing or accreditation programs, including state licensing agencies and other certifying organizations. As part of AHA's goal to provide the public with information regarding all options to healthcare, we have included links to some of these certifying bodies. These links connect users to the hospitals which participate in that organization's recognition program. The certifying bodies below represent only those that agreed to be listed on AHA's website. These links are maintained by each respective organization, and therefore AHA does not warrant the accuracy of information.
