Certificate of Distinction for Primary Stroke Centers

April 30, 2012

The Joint Commission's Certificate of Distinction for Primary Stroke Centers recognizes centers that make exceptional efforts to foster better outcomes for stroke care.  Achievement of certification signifies that the services you provide have the critical elements to achieve long-term success in improving outcomes.  It is the best signal to your community that the quality care you provide is effectively managed to meet the unique and specialized needs of stroke patients.  In fact, demonstrating compliance with the Joint Commission's national standards and performance measurement expectations may help obtain contracts from employers and purchasers concerned with controlling costs and improving productivity.

The Joint Commission's Primary Stroke Center Certification program was developed in collaboration with the American Stroke Association.  It is based on the Brain Attack Coalition's "Recommendations for the Establishment of Primary Stroke Centers."
