Friday, April 04, 2014

WellSpan York Hospital has received the Get with the Guidelines - Stroke Silver Plus Quality Achievement Award from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.

The hospital received the award for implementing specific quality improvement measures outlined for the treatment of stroke patients.

Get with the Guidelines - Stroke helps hospital teams provide the most up-to-date, research-based guidelines with the goal of speeding recovery and reducing death and disability for stroke patients.

WellSpan York Hospital earned the award by meeting specific quality achievement measures for the rapid diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients at a set level for a designated period. These measures include aggressive use of medications and risk-reduction therapies aimed at reducing death and disability, and improving the lives of stroke patients.

“WellSpan York Hospital is dedicated to improving the quality of stroke care,” said Lori Clark, vice president of neurosciences.

“The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get with the Guidelines - Stroke helps us achieve that goal.

“With this award, our hospital demonstrates its commitment to ensure that our patients receive care based on internationally respected clinical guidelines.”

WellSpan York Hospital has been designated a Primary Stroke Center since 2008.
