Top honor for stroke treatment goes to Cleveland Clinic
Posted on 06/27/2017
We received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With the Guidelines®–Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award with Target: StrokeSM Honor Roll Elite.

Hospitals must achieve 85 percent adherence to these stroke guidelines for at least two consecutive 12-month periods and 75 percent compliance with other stroke quality measure to receive the award.

Even more, the Stroke Honor Roll Elite is for hospitals that reduce the time between patient’s arrival at the hospital and treatment with clot-busting medication tPA.
