Accreditation Canada has recognized the Stroke Program at Toronto Western Hospital (TWH) with a special accolade called Distinction in Acute Stroke Services.
This achievement – also known as "Stroke Distinction" – is granted to organizations that demonstrate national leadership, clinical excellence and a commitment to continuing to improve the level of care for these patients.
Over the past year, the Stroke Program has rigorously examined the way UHN delivers acute stroke care and has since implemented a host of new measures that are closely aligned with the stroke guidelines and best practice recommendations laid out by Accreditation Canada.
Last month, TWH hosted an on-site survey team from Accreditation Canada, which meticulously reviewed the program and ultimately determined that the Stroke Program's efforts to deliver high-quality acute stroke care were worthy of this special distinction.
UHN News has been closely following TWH's pursuit of stroke distinction over the past year. Learn more by reading these two stories:
