Awards & Certifications


In 2005, both St. Alexius Medical Center and Alexian Brothers Medical Center received initial certification from The Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center. This means that they met the most stringent care standards for stroke, and they continue do so. To maintain Primary Stroke Center certification, both Centers must undergo a recertification process every 2 years. Both hospitals were among the first hospitals in the United States to be certified and among the first seven hospitals in Illinois.


In January of 2013, Alexian Brothers Medical Center became the first Comprehensive Stroke Center certified by the Join Commission in the Chicagoland area. This means Alexian Brothers Medical Center joins an elite group of providers focused on complex stroke care. Comprehensive Stroke Centers are recognized as industry leaders and are responsible for setting the national agenda in highly-specialized stroke care.

The Joint Commission awarded Alexian Rehabilitation Hospital Disease-Specific Care Certification for Stroke Rehabilitation, making it one of few in the state with this distinction. 

By recognizing select medical facilities for their advanced stroke care, The Joint Commission designation helps the public identify which hospitals are committed to excellence in stroke care.

 
The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association's Get With the Guidelines®—Stroke Gold Plus Performance Achievement Award

The American Stroke Association has continuously awarded the Gold Plus Achievement Award to Alexian Brothers Medical Center and St. Alexius Medical Center for successfully meeting over 12 stroke achievement and quality measures for at least 24 consecutive months. These measures include aggressive use of medications, such as IV tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), antithrombotics, anticoagulation therapy, deep vein thrombosis prophylaxis, and cholesterol-reducing medicine, and smoking cessation programs—all aimed at reducing death and disability, and improving the lives of stroke survivors.

 

In addition, Alexian Brothers Medical Center has been named to the Target Stroke Honor Roll for the last three years, indicating achievement of door-to-needle times less than 60 minutes, the first hospital in northern Illinois to meet such rigorous standards.
