2019 Million Hearts Hypertension Control Challenge Champion

Alexander Valley Healthcare was one of 17 nationwide honorees of the 2019 Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Challenge by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC recognized the professional health care providers at AVH for controlling blood pressure in more than 80% of its patients, stating in the award: “These remarkable efforts are critical to preventing and managing heart disease and stroke, two leading causes of death for Americans.” 

Saving lives through better blood pressure control has been a longstanding priority for the CDC and the Million Hearts® initiative. By recognizing the performance of the 17 honorees and sharing their lessons learned, the CDC aims to help other health care professionals achieve the same success in communities nationwide.
