Gold Performance Achievement Award
How We Earned It
According to an on-site review, The Brain & Spine Hospital adheres to a higher standard of stroke care by ensuring stroke patients receive treatment according to nationally accepted standards and recommendations.
What It Means
With a stroke, time lost is brain lost. The Brain & Spine Hospital has a comprehensive system in place for rapid diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients admitted to the emergency department. This includes being equipped 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide brain imaging scans, neurologists on-call to conduct patient evaluations and using clot-busting medications when appropriate.
How It Sets Us Apart
Medical City Plano is the first hospital in Collin County (and only the third hospital in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex) to earn this award.
