The UPMC Horizon and Jameson Foundations are proud to celebrate the hardworking staff of UPMC Jameson Hospital, which recently received the American Heart Association’s Gold Plus Get with the Guidelines® – Stroke quality achievement award. This prestigious award recognizes UPMC Jameson’s commitment to ensuring that stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines, ultimately leading to more lives saved and reduced disability.
Hospitals receiving the Gold Plus Get With The Guidelines® – Stroke quality achievement have reached an aggressive goal of treating patients to core standard levels of care as outlined by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association® for 2 consecutive calendar years or more. In addition, these hospitals have demonstrated compliance to an additional level of heart failure quality during the 24-month or greater period.
To celebrate this tremendous accomplishment, the UPMC Horizon and Jameson Foundations assisted in providing snacks and treats across UPMC Jameson to the departments that assisted in earning this award, including staff, administrators and other team members throughout the hospital. Please join us in celebrating this hard working team for earning this award! Congratulations!
