The Valley Hospital has been awarded Advanced Thrombectomy Capable Stroke Center Certification from The Joint Commission.
Offered in collaboration with the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, achieving Thrombectomy-Capable Stroke Center (TSC) Certification means an institution meets rigorous standards for performing endovascular thrombectomy and providing post-procedural care. According to The Joint Commission, recent studies have shown the efficacy of mechanical thrombectomy for large vessel occlusive ischemic strokes. A thrombectomy is the removal of a blood clot from inside a vein or artery.
“We are extremely proud of our Stroke Center for being awarded this certification from The Joint Commission,” said Audrey Meyers, President and CEO of Valley Health System. “This recognition reflects our Stroke Center’s commitment and dedication to providing exceptional care and treatment to all stroke patients, especially in complex cases.”
