This award recognizes SBMC’s commitment and success in implementing a high standard of stroke care by ensuring that their stroke patients receive treatment that meets nationally accepted, evidence-based standards and recommendations.
“This award is a testament to the work and commitment of our highly-skilled medical team,” states Hospital President, Douglas Kleam. “Being honored for providing excellent patient care is the highest recognition a hospital can get. SBMC is dedicated to improving the quality of stroke care and implementing the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines program is aligned with that goal.”
According to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, stroke is the number five cause of death and a leading cause of adult disability in the United States. On average, someone in the U.S. suffers a stroke every 40 seconds, someone dies of a stroke every four minutes, and nearly 800,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year.
SBMC earned the award by meeting specific quality achievement measures for the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients at a set level for a designated period. These quality measures are designed to help hospital teams follow the most up-to-date, evidence-based guidelines with the goal of speeding recovery, and reducing death and disability for stroke patients.
