The UPMC Horizon and Jameson Foundations are excited to celebrate the hardworking staff of UPMC Horizon Hospital, which recently received the American Heart Association’s Silver Plus Get with the Guidelines® – Stroke quality achievement award. This prestigious award recognizes UPMC Horizon’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 Silver 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 1 calendar year. In addition, these hospitals have demonstrated compliance to an additional level of heart failure quality during the 12-month period.
To celebrate this tremendous accomplishment, the UPMC Horizon and Jameson Foundations assisted in providing snacks and treats across UPMC Horizon 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!
