NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center Certified as a Comprehensive Stroke Center
June 23, 2016
NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center is now certified by the Joint Commission as a Comprehensive Stroke Center, the highest level of stroke certification a hospital can receive. The Joint Commission's gold seal is awarded to institutions that provide the most advanced stroke care to patients with exceptional, around-the-clock treatment.
In order to receive this distinction, NewYork-Presbyterian /Weill Cornell Medical Center has met all of the eligibility requirements. There are only approximately 100 Joint Commission Comprehensive Stroke Centers around the country.
We are extremely proud of all of the physicians and staff at Weill Cornell Medicine who were able to accomplish this!
