Hillcrest Receives Stroke Award
Hillcrest Hospital was recently notified that it has received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association's Get With The Guidelines® Stroke Gold Plus Achievement Award with Target: StrokeSM Honor Roll Elite Plus. The award recognizes the hospital’s commitment to providing the most appropriate stroke treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines based on the latest scientific evidence.
These quality measures are designed to help hospital teams follow the most up-to-date, evidence-based guidelines with the goal of speeding recovery and reducing death and disability for stroke patients.
A stroke patient loses 1.9 million neurons each minute stroke treatment is delayed. This recognition further demonstrates our commitment to delivering advanced stroke treatments to patients quickly and safely, said Dr. Harte. Hillcrest continues to strive for excellence in the acute treatment of stroke patients. This recognition further reinforces our team's hard work.
