The Comprehensive Stroke Center
Upstate University Hospital holds the distinction of becoming the first hospital in the Central New York region to be awarded DNV Comprehensive Stroke Center Certification. That designation encompasses the full spectrum of stroke care—diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and education—and establishes clear metrics to evaluate outcomes.
Comprehensive stroke centers are typically the largest and best-equipped hospitals in a given geographical area that can treat any kind of stroke or stroke complication.
“Accreditation and certification in healthcare provide much more than recognition, ... These programs help establish standards of excellence and best practices that directly impact patients’ lives. Comprehensive Stroke Center is the highest level that can be achieved by a stroke-care program, and we are pleased to be working with the leading organizations to bring forward this new certification. This certification is available to all qualifying hospitals, regardless of who their accrediting organization is.”
