Nationally and locally, hospitals and health systems are concerned about offering the best healthcare possible in the most efficient and effective manner. We know that being efficient and basing our services on benchmark protocols make the most of our resources and, most importantly, save lives. One way of assuring that we are offering the highest quality of care is to seek accreditation and certification for the services we provide. Our recent certification by the Joint Commission as an Advanced Primary Stroke Center is a good example. This certification means Port Huron Hospital has been recognized as having state-of-the-art services, staff, and training for treating stroke patients. Following a rigorous onsite review, the Joint Commission approved our stroke treatment protocols. These include advanced imaging capabilities, 24/7 availability of specialized treatments, and staff with unique education and competencies to care for stroke patients. We’re proud of the accreditations, certifications and quality designations we’ve earned for the high quality of care that we provide throughout the hospital.
