American Heart Association recognizes our gold-level care at The Portland Clinic

Posted on January 3, 2023

The American Heart Association (AHA) has recognized The Portland Clinic with its highest-level Gold and Gold+ performance awards for Type 2 diabetes and hypertension management. We’re proud of this tangible evidence of our team’s commitment to improving care and saving lives.

2022 AHA “Target: BP” Gold+ Quality Achievement Award

Target: BP™ is a national initiative of the AHA and the American Medical Association aimed at reducing

heart attacks and strokes. The program celebrates physician practices that help their patients achieve high rates of blood pressure control. Gold+, the highest performance level, is awarded to practices that control hypertension in at least 70% of their adult patients and demonstrate a commitment to measuring blood pressure accurately. The Portland Clinic earned the Gold+ Award by meeting this high standard of care. For us, helping our patients stay healthy is gratifying beyond measure.

Through Target: Type 2 Diabetes, the AHA and the American Diabetes Association are working together to reduce the risks of diabetes and cardiovascular disease and to build awareness of the links between the two. As a participant in this program, The Portland Clinic has access to the latest research, tools and resources so we can provide the most up-to-date care for these conditions. The Gold Award recognizes that we meet specific clinical measures while improving patient care through awareness, detection, diabetes management and patient empowerment. Most importantly, though, our participation supports our efforts to achieve the best possible health outcomes for our patients by putting proven knowledge to work for you every day.
