Heart attack care initiative expands to Iowa with $4.6 million Helmsley grant
The American Heart Association announced Tuesday that it has received a $4.6 million grant from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust to support the AHA's Mission: Lifeline initiative in Iowa.
"This is a great day for rural health in Iowa, and especially for heart patients and their loved ones," said Kevin Harker, executive vice president of the AHA's Midwest Affiliate. "Thanks to the vision and generosity of the Helmsley Charitable Trust and our other contributors and collaborators, we will be able to better coordinate heart attack care across the entire state, which will mean better outcomes for patients and more lives saved."
Launched in 2007, Mission: Lifeline works to improve coordination between local hospitals and EMS providers to shorten the time to lifesaving treatment for patients who have a type of heart attack called ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).
