All three of Steward Health Care’s Mahoning Valley hospitals experienced notable growth in 2020, according to Alexa Polinsky, marketing director.

Trumbull Regional Medical Center in Warren achieved the highest level of chest pain accreditation available through the American College of Cardiology. This means the hospital has a higher level of expertise in dealing with patients with heart attack symptoms. Trumbull is the only accredited chest pain center in the Mahoning Valley.

The hospital’s cardiac rehab program was recertified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation. The Wound Healing Center was renamed a Center of Distinction by Healogics. And the inpatient diabetes program was awarded The Joint Commission’s Advanced Certification.

TRMC also expanded specialty care with additional providers and services including urology, gastroenterology and robotic surgical services.

The hospital’s behavioral health program grew by 41.6% over 2019 and a $1.63 million construction project was started in the Level III Trauma Center that will streamline patient care.

Sharon Regional Medical Center in Sharon, Pa.,  achieved an A grade for patient safety and retained accreditation as a bariatric center of excellence through the American College of Surgeons for weight loss surgery.
