McLaren Flint is a Certified Primary Stroke Center
McLaren Flint is the first hospital in Genesee County to earn The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Heart-Check mark for Advanced Certification for Comprehensive Stroke Centers. The Gold Seal of Approval® and the Heart-Check mark represent symbols of quality from their respective organizations.
With this certification, McLaren Flint joins an elite group of health care organizations across the country that are focused on highly-specialized stroke care. McLaren Flint is one of six hospitals in the state to earn this certification. To be eligible, hospitals must demonstrate compliance with stroke-related standards as a Primary Stroke Center and meet additional requirements, including those related to advanced imaging capabilities, 24/7 availability of specialized treatments, and providing staff with the unique education and competencies to care for complex stroke patients.
McLaren Flint underwent a rigorous onsite review in July of 2016 when Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with stroke-related standards and requirements.
"By achieving this advanced certification, McLaren Flint has thoroughly demonstrated the greatest level of commitment to the care of its patients with a complex stroke condition,” says Mark R. Chassin, M.D., FACP, M.P.P., M.P.H., president and CEO, The Joint Commission. “Certification is a voluntary process and The Joint Commission commends McLaren Flint for successfully undertaking this challenge to elevate the standard of its care for the community it serves.”
