Henry Mayo received accolades and recognition of best practices following a one-day survey in June by The Joint Commission for recertification of the hospital’s Advanced Primary Stroke Center designation.
The surveyor was most impressed with the teams, the staff and in particular the interdisciplinary practices of how our team worked through the improvement in care for stroke patients.
“Our stroke team has led the way to continued certification,” said Roger Seaver, CEO and president of Henry Mayo hospital. “I want to acknowledge specifically the leadership of our Medical Director Dr. Mark Schultz, our Nursing Director Dee Rickett, and Shannon Smith, our Stroke Team Nurse Navigator. In addition, I commend the neurologists, neurosurgeons, Emergency Room doctors, radiologists and all physicians who participate in the care of stroke patients.”
Seaver added that the Emergency Department, ICU and MS1 nursing staff, radiology and other support departments were all cited by the Joint Commission surveyor for the impressive work and interdisciplinary processes in place at Henry Mayo.
“It is with great pride and satisfaction that I offer my personal thanks to all involved in meeting the continuing certification standards for our Advanced Primary Stroke Center,” Seaver said. “It is yet another great example of our hospital living our mission: To improve the health of our community through compassion and excellence in healthcare services.”
