Trios Health designated as Level I Cardiac Care Center

March 27, 2014 

Trios Health in Kennewick is now categorized as a Level I Cardiac Care Center. The categorization, from the Washington State Emergency Cardiac and Stroke System, became effective late last week and was announced Thursday morning.

It means the health system met exacting criteria and provides the high level of cardiac care 24 hours a day, a Trios Health news release said.

“Last fall the Joint Commission named Trios Health the only ‘Top Performer’ in the Tri-Cities in three key areas, including heart failure care. Now the state recognizes our increased capabilities and the high level of care our team delivers,” said Glen Marshall, Trios CEO, in the news release.

“Doing what it takes to become a Level I Cardiac Center has been a focal point for us. Providing the services our patients want and need is at the heart of our commitment to this community,” he said.

Trios Health recently added interventional cardiology to its list of heart care offerings. Its interventional cardiologists repair blood vessels by placing stents and perform other procedures, from removing blood clots to getting rid of plaque.

Dr. Yunus Moosa, medical director of Trios Cardiology Services, leads the program.

“Since starting our interventional program at Trios in October, we’ve experienced a rapid and steady increase in the volumes of patients,” he said in the news release. “Clearly, the Tri-Cities needs and wants these life-changing services. We look forward to continued growth in the program to answer that call.”
