HackensackUMC Palisades receives Certification as a Primary Stroke Center
 

HackensackUMC Palisades announced that it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Heart-Check mark for Advanced Certification for Primary Stroke Centers. The Gold Seal of Approval and the Heart-Check mark represent symbols of quality from their respective organizations.

HackensackUMC Palisades underwent a rigorous onsite review earlier this year. Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with stroke-related standards and requirements, including program management, the delivery of clinical care and performance improvement.

“We are pleased to receive the advanced certification from The Joint Commission and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association,” said Bruce J. Markowitz, President and CEO of HackensackUMC Palisades. “The certification provides us with the opportunity to highlight the exceptional stroke care we provide to our communities. We applaud our physicians, skilled nurses, and devoted staff for their tireless efforts in helping us reach these high standards of excellence in patient care.”

Established in 2003, Advanced Certification for Primary Stroke Centers is awarded for a two-year period to Joint Commission-accredited acute care hospitals. The certification was derived from the Brain Attack Coalition’s “Recommendations for the Establishment of Primary Stroke Centers” (JAMA, 2000) and the “Revised and Updated Recommendations for the Establishment of Primary Stroke Centers” (Stroke, 2011).

“HackensackUMC Palisades has thoroughly demonstrated the greatest level of commitment to the care of stroke patients through its Advanced Certification for Primary Stroke Centers,” said Wendi J. Roberts, RN, Executive Director, Certification Programs, The Joint Commission.

“We commend HackensackUMC Palisades for becoming a leader in stroke care, potentially providing a higher standard of service for stroke patients in its community.” “We congratulate HackensackUMC Palisades for achieving this designation,” said Nancy Brown, Chief Executive Officer, the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. “By adhering to this very specific set of treatment guidelines, HackensackUMC Palisades has clearly made it a priority to deliver high quality care to all patients affected by stroke.”

Stroke is the number four cause of death and a leading cause of adult disability in the United States, according to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association

n. On average, someone suffers a stroke every 40 seconds; someone dies of a stroke every four minutes; and 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year.
