Upstate earns recognition for stroke treatment
Upstate University Hospital‘s care for strokes and heart failure has again earned high marks from three national organizations.
The award — Get With The Guidelines® — Stroke Gold Plus Achievement Award with Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus — recognizes the hospital‘s commitment to providing the most appropriate stroke treatment according to nationally recognized guidelines. Upstate received the same honor last year.
The designation is awarded by the American Heart Association in conjunction with the American Stroke Association and the American College of Cardiology.
Upstate became the only specially designated Comprehensive Stroke Center in the region, in 2015, when it met a rigorous review of its stroke treatment protocols by DNV Healthcare, a hospital accreditation organization.
