The UC Davis Medical Center has been awarded the Get With the Guidelines Gold-Plus Quality Achievement Award for stroke care.

Get With The Guidelines is the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s quality improvement program. Hospitals are honored for using measures developed by the organization to improve care and quality of life for stroke patients.

UCD earned the award for implementing diagnostic and treatment guidelines — including the use of specific medications and risk-reduction therapies — that can reduce deaths and disabilities and speed recovery from stroke, according to a news release.
