Martha Jefferson Hospital has been named an Advanced Primary Stroke Center by the Joint Commission, a leading healthcare accreditation agency. Martha Jefferson earned this distinction after the Joint Commission conducted a full-day, on-site review.
The Advanced Primary Stroke Center certification recognizes Martha Jefferson Hospital's exceptional efforts to foster better outcomes for stroke care and signifies the services provided at the hospital include the critical elements needed to achieve long-term success in improving stroke outcomes.
"The teamwork at Martha Jefferson Hospital is what allowed us to excel and achieve this great accomplishment," said Dr. Alexander Grunsfeld, Stroke Program Medical Director. "Everyone from members of the Lab, Pharmacy staff, Medical Imaging and Rehabilitation Services staff were involved and their hard work is reflective of Martha Jefferson's commitment to providing outstanding care to our patients and our community."
Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission seeks to continuously improve the safety and quality of care provided to the public through the provision of health care accreditation and related services that support performance improvement in health care organizations.
