Adventist HealthCare Hospitals Earn Awards for Providing Community with the Highest Standard of Rapid, Life-saving Stroke Care
Washington Adventist Hospital and Shady Grove Adventist Hospital – both part of the Adventist HealthCare system - have received two awards from the American Heart Association (AHA) for their life-saving, high-quality stroke care.
The first award, Gold Plus Quality Achievement, recognizes each hospital for reaching an aggressive goal of treating stroke patients with 85 percent or higher compliance to core standard levels of care outlined by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association for 12 consecutive months. In addition, both hospitals have demonstrated 75 percent compliance with seven out of 10 stroke quality measures during the 12-month period. Fast evaluation and treatment of stroke patients helps to prevent serious brain damage and allows for optimal outcomes.
Selecting a Hospital to Receive Care
Quality measures provide a good snapshot of the quality of care that hospitals give; however, a hospital's quality is more than just its scores. You can use this information in addition to discussions with your health care provider and family in choosing a hospital to receive care for your particular condition.
