Montgomery, AL – Jackson Hospital recently received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines®–Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award. The award recognizes Jackson Hospital’s commitment and success in implementing a higher standard of stroke care by ensuring that stroke patients receive treatment for at least 24 months according to nationally accepted standards and recommendations.

To receive the Get With The Guidelines®–-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award, Jackson Hospital demonstrated at least 85% adherence in the Get With The Guidelines–Stroke key measures for 24 or more consecutive months.
