The Joint Commission, in conjunction with The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, recently recognized Billings Clinic with Advanced Certification for Primary Stroke Centers.
Achievement of Primary Stroke Center Certification signifies an organization’s dedication to fostering better outcomes. Billings Clinic’s Primary Stroke Center Certification has demonstrated that their program meets elements of performance to achieve long-term success in improving outcomes for stroke patients.
Billings Clinic underwent an on-site review in June 2013. A Joint Commission expert reviewed Billings Clinic’s compliance with the requirements for The Joint Commission’s Disease-Specific Care Certification program as well as primary stroke center requirements, such as collecting Joint Commission core measure data and using it for performance improvement activities.
Billings Clinic will be able to display The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval.
