LOS ANGELES, August 22, 2023 — Ninety-two hospitals in Southern California are among the 2,600 nationwide that have been recognized for their commitment to participate in the American Heart Association’s Get With The Guidelines® initiative to improve outcomes for Americans who experience heart disease or stroke.

Heart disease and stroke are the No. 1 and No. 5 causes of death in the United States, respectively. These health crises require swift and proven treatment to ensure the best outcomes for patients. The American Heart Association sets the standards for high-quality, science-based care and access that all patients deserve.

Each year, the American Heart Association recognizes hospitals across the country for consistently following up-to-date, research-based guidelines to ensure all patients have access to lifesaving care. In Southern California, 92 hospitals were recognized this year in the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura:
