Shady Grove Medical Center, Washington Adventist Hospital Receive National Awards for Stroke Care

Adventist HealthCare’s two main hospitals have each received two awards from the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association for life-saving, high-quality stroke care. These awards come during National Stroke Month, which raises awareness about the signs and symptoms of stroke.

The first award, Gold Plus Quality Achievement, recognizes each hospital’s adherence to Get With The Guidelines-Stroke, a hospital program from the American Heart/American Stroke Associations that focuses on improving stroke care through consistent use of the latest scientific treatment guidelines.

The second award, Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus, recognizes the hospitals for maintaining a short time period between a patient’s arrival at the hospital and treatment with clot-dissolving medication, as designated by quality guidelines.

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.
