St. Mary's, consistently on the leading edge in Neuroscience care, was the first community hospital 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 four years in a row: 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. 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 -- for a total of six consecutive years of outstanding quality. In addition, St. Mary’s is a recipient of the Healthgrades Neurosciences Excellence Award in 2014 and has been ranked by Healthgrades as one of America’s 100 best hospitals for treatment of stroke in 2013 and 2014.
