Stroke care nets awards for St. Mary’s Hospital

Aug 20, 2019

Achievements in stroke diagnosis, treatment earn Get With The Guidelines, Honor Roll awards

TUCSON (July 24, 2019) – Stroke care provided at Carondelet St. Mary’s Hospital is being recognized with the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award and Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus Award.

Stroke is the fifth cause of death and a leading cause of adult disability in the United States, and nearly 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Stroke AwardA stroke, also called a “brain attack”, occurs when blood flow to an area of the brain is restricted, brain cells are deprived of oxygen and start to die. A stroke is a medical emergency. It can cause lasting brain damage, long-term disability, or even death, according to the CDC website.

There are two types of stroke:

  • Ischemic stroke occurs when blood clots or other particles block the blood vessels to the brain. Fatty deposits called plaque can also cause blockages by building up in the blood vessels.
  • Hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a blood vessel bursts in the brain. Blood builds up and damages surrounding brain tissue.

A primary stroke center, Carondelet St. Mary’s Hospital qualified for recognition on the Target: Honor Roll for meeting quality measures developed to reduce the time between the patient’s arrival at the hospital and treatment with the clot-buster tissue plasminogen activator, or tPA, the only drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat ischemic stroke.

“Carondelet St. Mary’s Hospital is dedicated to providing quality care for residents of our communities,” said Ryan Harper, chief operating officer. “This recognition acknowledges the hospital’s commitment to ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized guidelines based on the latest scientific evidence.”
