KYW-TV Channel 3 – Philadelphia learned today that two nursing facilities in our viewing area, Deptford Center in Deptford, New Jersey, and Hammonton Center in Hammonton, New Jersey, were designated by the American Heart Association’s Target: BP for 2023. Both facilities are Centers Health Care skilled nursing facilities so congratulations to both.

Deptford Center was given Gold status, while Hammonton Center was given Gold-plus. Gold standing recognizes practices that have 70 percent or more of their adult population with high BP controlled and Gold-plus recognizes practices that meet the Gold status criteria and also complete four of six evidenced-based Blood Pressure (BP) activities.

Target: BP is a national initiative formed by the AHA and the American Medical Association (AMA) in response to the high prevalence of uncontrolled blood pressure (BP). Target: BP helps healthcare organizations and care teams, at no cost, improve BP control rates through an evidence-based quality improvement program and recognizes organizations committed to improving BP control.
