Get With The Guidelines-Stroke Gold Plus Award
I am proud to announce that St. Luke’s Allentown and Bethlehem campuses have been approved for the Get With The Guidelines® — Stroke Gold Plus award and the Target: Stroke Honor Roll. This award makes us part of an elite group of hospitals recognized by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. The award recognizes both St. Luke’s Allentown and Bethlehem campuses’ commitment and success in implementing a higher standard of stroke care by ensuring stroke patients receive treatment according to nationally accepted standards and recommendations.
This award will be nationally recognized and highlighted in the following ways:
- AHA’s International Stroke Conference Ceremony in February
- Stroke Journal Ad (AHA’s Scientific Journal) in the spring
- AHA’s US News and World Report Recognition Ad that appears in July
- AHA’s Interactive Quality Improvement Map
I would like to thank all the staff that work diligently every day to not only provide optimal care but to improve the quality of life for our patients that have suffered a cerebral vascular accident.
