Two Adventist HealthCare hospitals, Shady Grove Medical Center and White Oak Medical Center, each have received 2023 achievement awards from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA).
The hospitals earned ‘Get with The Guidelines – Stroke Gold Plus’ awards and Target: Type 2 Diabetes Honor Roll recognition for demonstrating their commitment to following up-to-date, research-based guidelines for stroke treatment, ultimately leading to more lives saved, shorter recovery times and fewer readmissions to the hospitals.
Additionally, Shady Grove Medical Center earned Target: Stroke Elite Honor Roll recognition for meeting criteria that reduces the time between an eligible patient’s arrival at the hospital and treatment with the clot-busting medication alteplase.
Per the press release: The recognition continued a years-long streak of honors for Adventist HealthCare’s stroke teams in the Get with The Guidelines program. Stroke is the No. 5 cause of death in the U.S. On average, one American suffers a stroke every 40 seconds, and someone dies of a stroke every four minutes. High-quality stroke care that follows the latest research-based guidelines ultimately leads to more lives saved.
To achieve the Get with The Guidelines Gold Plus Achievement Award, both hospitals reached an aggressive goal of treating patients to AHA/ASA core standards of care for two consecutive calendar years or more. They also demonstrated compliance with an additional level of quality standards during a 24-month or greater period.
The hospitals earned Target: Type 2 Diabetes Honor Roll by also demonstrating compliance with the Get with The Guidelines® overall diabetes cardiovascular initiative composite score for 12 consecutive months.
