St. Luke’s Emergency and Transport Service (SLETS) received the American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline EMS Gold Plus Award for implementing quality improvement measures in the treatment of patients who experience the most dangerous form of heart attacks.

Rodney Wolfe, Monroe County operations supervisor for SLETS, accepted the award during a presentation at the Pocono Township Municipal Building in Tannersville. Wolfe was joined by Don Seiple, president of St. Luke’s Monroe Campus, and Carol Kuplen, president of St. Luke’s-Bethlehem and chief nursing officer.

This is the second year in a row that SLETS – which provides basic and advanced life support emergency medical services to communities in Bucks, Lehigh and Monroe counties – is receiving an AHA Mission: Lifeline award.

Last year, SLETS received the Bronze Award. This year, the EMS team achieved the Gold Plus Award for providing exceptional cardiac care to the residents of the Lehigh Valley and Poconos.

Agencies receiving the Mission: Lifeline Gold award have demonstrated at least 75 percent compliance for each required achievement measure for two years.
