Grass Valley, CA, November 14, 2013 – Dignity Health Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital (SNMH) has received the Get With the Guidelines® - Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. The award recognizes SNMH's commitment and success in implementing a higher standard of care by ensuring that stroke patients receive treatment according to nationally accepted guidelines.

SNMH'S participation in Get With The Guidelines demonstrates its commitment to quality care. The goal of participating in the program is to save lives. SNMH is proud to be a part of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association's efforts to turn guidelines into lifelines.

"I am very proud of the hospital's stroke program. This accomplishment is the result of a tremendous team effort, with outstanding work by the emergency first responders, the Emergency Department, nursing units, physicians and rehabilitation services offered at SNMH," said Marie Daly, SNMH stroke program and readmissions coordinator.

According to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, stroke is one of the leading causes of death and serious, long-term disability in the United States. On average, someone suffers a stroke every 40 seconds; someone dies of a stroke every four minutes; and 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year. SNMH's quick and efficient use of Get With The Guidelines program procedures can improve the quality of care for stroke patients and may reduce disability and save lives.
