Shady Grove Adventist and Washington Adventist Hospitals Recognized for High-Quality Stroke Care
Shady Grove Adventist Hospital and Washington Adventist Hospital – both part of the Adventist HealthCare system - have received the Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award from the American Heart Association (AHA) for their expert, high-quality stroke care. This award recognizes each hospital for following the AHA’s Stroke Performance Achievement Indicators for 12 consecutive months and complying with the AHA’s Quality Measures. These are the latest scientific guidelines from the AHA and the American Stroke Association.
Both hospitals have acute stroke units, integrated emergency response systems and multidisciplinary stroke teams including neurologists, surgeons, emergency department physicians, nurses and a stroke program coordinator who ensures constant coordination of care among the various stroke program team members.
Shady Grove Adventist Hospital and Washington Adventist Hospital are also designated Primary Stroke Centers by the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems (MIEMSS). As Primary Stroke Centers, the hospitals have measures in place that allow for a streamlined, coordinated approach to caring for stroke patients.
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.
