Gold Plus Recognition
Our commitment to quality stroke care is being recognized by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. We’ve been honored with the Get With The Guidelines® Stroke Gold Plus and Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite Award which means we reached an aggressive goal of treating patients with 85 percent or higher compliance to core standard levels of care for two consecutive years. The recognition also takes into account the administering of clot-busting treatment for ischemic stroke patients within 60 minutes of arrival at the hospital more than 75 percent of the time, dramatically improving patient outcomes.
