Stroke and Joint Care

Our nationally certified programs for hip and knee and stroke care show a commitment to continuous performance improvement, providing high quality patient care, and reducing risks. We have three disease specific certifications from the Joint Commission; Primary Stroke Center, and Centers of Excellence for Total Hip Replacement, and Total Knee Replacement.

Each certification recognizes our organization’s distinct achievement in delivering evidence-based care and the opportunity to keep pushing ourselves to provide better for our patients. Nurses working with these patients can expect a standardized approach to care, therefore reducing variation and errors. This structure provides a framework for consistency of care to improve patient outcomes.

Both programs have a registered nurse coordinator who is involved in all aspects of patient care and provides support and continuing education to the nursing staff. Nurses play an integral role in our Stroke and Joint Care teams and their continued success.
