Comprehensive Stroke Center status is the highest level of stroke certification available from the American Heart Association.
Mischer Neuroscience Institute at
Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center achieved a significant milestone
after being recognized by The Joint Commission and the American Heart
Association/American Stroke Association as meeting The Joint
Commission's standards for Comprehensive Stroke Center Certification.
MNI is the first and only stroke program
in the region to meet such standards. The certification
solidifies MNI's place in an elite group of providers focused on complex
stroke care. Complex Stroke Centers are recognized as industry leaders
and are responsible for setting the national agenda in highly
specialized stroke care.
Comprehensive Stroke Center Certification
recognizes those hospitals that have state-of-the-art infrastructure,
staff and training to receive and treat patients with the most complex
strokes. MNI underwent a rigorous onsite review earlier this year during
which Joint Commission experts reviewed the institute's compliance with
the stringent Comprehensive Stroke Center standards and requirements,
including advanced imaging capabilities, around-the-clock availability
of specialized treatments, and staff with the unique education and
competencies to care for complex stroke patients.
