Jordan Hospital and Tufts Medical Center are working together to ensure that all the medical services you need — from the common to the complex
Are easily accessible and of the highest quality. Our clinical affiliation includes having Tufts Medical Center specialists working alongside Jordan Hospital physicians and nurses so you don’t have to travel to Boston for advanced services.

For the past several years, the Jordan Hospital Stroke Club has provided education, Neonatal Care Plymouth and support to victims of stroke, their families and friends. Recognizing that fear of the unknown can be very scary and overwhelming; the Stroke Club holds monthly support groups where participants share stories and offer guidance and understanding for each other.

Has received the 2010 American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines® Stroke Gold Plus Performance Achievement Award. The award recognizes Jordan Hospital’s commitment and success in implementing excellent care for stroke patients, according to evidence-based guidelines.

To receive the award, Jordan Hospital achieved 85 percent or higher adherence to all Get With The Guidelines-Stroke Performance Achievement indicators for two or more consecutive 12-month intervals and achieved 75 percent or higher compliance with six of 10 Get With The Guidelines-Stroke Quality Measures, which are reporting initiatives to measure quality of care.

With a stroke, time lost is brain lost, and the Get With The Guidelines–Stroke Gold Plus Performance Achievement Award demonstrates Jordan Hospital’s commitment to being one of the top hospitals in the country for providing aggressive, proven stroke care,” said Maureen Moroney, RN, BSN, nursing director, 3 South, and stroke coordinator at Jordan Hospital. “We will continue with our focus on providing care that has been shown in the scientific literature to quickly and efficiently treat stroke patients with evidence-based protocols.

Jordan Hospital is to be commended for its commitment to implementing standards of care and protocols for treating stroke patients,” said Lee H. Schwamm, M.D., chair of the Get With The Guidelines National Steering Committee and director of the TeleStroke and Acute Stroke Services at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. “The full implementation of acute care and secondary prevention recommendations and guidelines is a critical step in saving the lives and improving outcomes of stroke patients.

Get With The Guidelines–Stroke uses the “teachable moment,” the time soon after a patient has had a stroke, when they are most likely to listen to and follow their healthcare professionals’ guidance. Studies demonstrate that patients who are taught how to manage their risk factors while still in the hospital reduce their risk of a second heart attack or stroke.
