Awards
UM UCH Primary Stroke Center Wins Silver Award

The Primary Stroke Centers at University of Maryland Harford Memorial Hospital (UM HMH) and University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center (UM UCMC) were awarded the Silver Plus and Silver Award respectively for implementing the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association Get with the Guidelines Stroke Program. The goal of the program is simple: to improve outcomes for individuals who suffered a stroke.

Get With The Guidelines(®)-Stroke puts the expertise of the American Stroke Association to work for hospital teams, helping to ensure that the care they provide to stroke patients is aligned with the latest scientific guidelines. With these guidelines in place, which include appropriate use of medication, therapies and education; University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health (UM UCH) has been able to improve outcomes and quality of life for its stroke patients.

Both hospitals have been recognized in the past for their achievements in caring for stroke patients. However, this is a first time Silver Plus Award honor for UM HMH. The Plus Award is an advanced level of recognition for hospital compliance with the quality measures within the Get With The Guidelines Stroke Program.
