Neurosciences - St. Mary's Hospital and Health Care System

St. Mary's, consistently on the leading edge in Neuroscience care, was the first hospital in North Georgia and one of the first 20 in America to receive Joint Commission specialty certification in stroke care. We have gone on to receive the Get With The Guidelines Gold Plus Performance Achievement Award for stroke care from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association for eight years in a row: 2010-2017. Each award demonstrates that St. Mary’s has met or exceeded the highest national standards for stroke care for at least two consecutive 12-month periods. In addition, St. Mary’s is a recipient of the Healthgrades Neurosciences Excellence Award six years in a row (2012-2017) and has been ranked by Healthgrades as one of America’s 100 best hospitals for treatment of stroke in multiple years, including 2017. Becker's Hospital Review has named St. Mary's to its 2016 list of Hospitals and Health Systems with Great Neurosurgery and Spine Programs.
