Plano — Medical City Plano has been recertified as a Comprehensive Stroke Center (CSC), reflecting the highest level of competence in treating serious stroke events. The facility has held the highest certification for nine years.
Stroke center certification determines which facility a patient should be taken to for the most appropriate care. Medical City Plano underwent a rigorous, onsite assessment by a team of DNV reviewers that evaluated compliance with related certification standards including program management and delivering and facilitating exceptional clinical care.
“As a comprehensive stroke center, Medical City Plano has the advanced technology and ability to act with extreme efficiency because of the time-critical nature of stroke treatment,” says Jyric Sims, PhD, FACHE, CEO of Medical City Plano. “This recertification validates the efforts we continually put into this program for the health and safety of our patients.”
Medical City Plano’s recertification recognizes its commitment to fostering continuous quality improvement in patient safety and quality of care.
As a Comprehensive Stroke Center, Medical City Plano also actively participates in research studies, including national clinical trials for stroke to continually improve care.
