Beloit Memorial Hospital earns heart, stroke treatment honors

Print Article

BELOIT - Beloit Memorial Hospital has received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association's Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award and the Target: StrokeSM Honor Roll award.

These awards recognize the hospital's commitment to ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines.

The hospital earned the Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award by meeting specific quality achievement measures for the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients. These measures include evaluation of the proper use of medications and other stroke treatments with the goal of speeding recovery and reducing death and disability for stroke patients. Before discharge, patients also receive education on managing their health, schedule a follow-up visit, as well as learn more about other care transition interventions.

In addition, the hospital received the association's Target: StrokeSM Honor Roll Award for meeting quality measures developed to reduce the time between the patient's arrival at the hospital and treatment with the clot-buster tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), the only drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat ischemic stroke.

Beloit Memorial Hospital is part of Beloit Health System.
