Rush OP certified
“Rush Oak Park Hospital has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for certification as a Primary Stroke Center after undergoing a voluntary on-site evaluation and demonstrating compliance with nationally developed standards for stroke care.
Stroke is a leading cause of serious, long-term disability in the United States, with about 4.7 million stroke survivors alive today. Being a certified primary stroke center means following best practices, providing a high level of stroke care and producing better outcomes for stroke patients by delivering standardized care based on national recommendations and guidelines; tailoring treatment to individual patient needs and supporting patient self-management; using performance data to improve treatment plans; and promoting the flow of patient information across providers and settings.
“The Joint Commission stroke certification is one more way in which we demonstrate to our patients and community that we continue to make every effort to offer the best quality health care possible,” said Bruce Elegant, president and CEO, Rush Oak Park Hospital.
The Joint Commission launched the stroke certification program in 2003. A complete list of programs that are certified by The Joint Commission is available at www.qualitycheck.org.
