Gold Seal of Approval™ for stroke care with the awarding of Primary Stroke Center certification
How We Earned It
The Brain & Spine Hospital volunteered for an extensive, unannounced, on-site evaluation by a team of reviewers from The Joint Commission. Our program was evaluated against Joint Commission standards through assessing our processes and our ability to evaluate and improve care, as well as interviews with patients and staff. Criteria are based on recommendations published by the Brain Attack Coalition and the American Stroke Association's statements / guidelines for stroke care.
What It Means
"Medical City Plano demonstrated that its stroke care program follows national standards and guidelines that can significantly improve outcomes for stroke patients," says Charles A. Mowll, executive vice president of Business Development, Government and External Relations at The Joint Commission.
How It Sets Us Apart
Medical City Plano is the first and only hospital in Collin County (and just the third hospital in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex) to earn this designation.
