Joint Commission, Heart Association Launch Certification Program for Comprehensive Stroke Centers
The Joint Commission and the American Heart Association have launched the disease-specific care advanced certification program for comprehensive stroke centers.
The goal of this certification program is to recognize the significant differences in resources, staff and training that are necessary for the treatment of complex stroke cases. The advanced certification program for comprehensive stroke centers builds on the certification program for primary stroke centers. It is anticipated that there may be more than 200 certified comprehensive stroke centers in the U.S. over the next few years.
