Emory University Hospital's Robert Bachman Named to American Heart Association Board
Robert Bachman, chief operating officer for Emory University Hospital, has been elected to the board of directors of the American Heart Association's Greater Southeast Affiliate. Bachman is slated to serve on the board during the AHA’s 2008-2009 fiscal year.

Bachman oversees Emory University Hospital, a 579-bed adult, tertiary care facility staffed by Emory University School of Medicine faculty. The hospital, a component of Emory Healthcare, is known for cardiology, cardiac surgery, orthopaedics, oncology and neurology/neurosurgery, and is one of the region’s most comprehensive multiple organ and tissue transplant centers.

Emory University Hospital recently was awarded Primary Stroke Center Certification from The Joint Commission for its rapid response in diagnosing and treating stroke patients and for its exceptional efforts to foster better outcomes for stroke care. In July, Emory was ranked 13th for heart and heart surgery by U.S. News & World Report in its annual guide to “America's Best Hospitals.”

“I’m honored to be able to serve as a board member and I look forward to helping the American Heart Association lead the fight to save lives from cardiovascular disease and stroke,” says Bachman. Bachman has been significantly involved with American Heart Association, most recently overseeing the Atlanta Start! Heart Walk fundraising efforts and providing leadership to ensure strong participation by Emory University Hospital staff and physicians.

During the upcoming year, he will help the Association focus on several key priorities including educating women about heart disease, preventing and combating childhood obesity, promoting physical activity, and empowering blacks and Hispanics to reduce their risk of stroke and risk.
