“Get with the Guidelines:” Sherman Hospital Gold Certified

Sherman Hospital was one of 277 hospitals in the United States being recognized in the July 23 issue of US News & World Report by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With the Guidelines SM (GWTG) program in an ad for its performance achievement in cardiac and stroke patient care.

According to the American Heart Association’s website, the “Get With The Guidelines” (GWTG) program is the premier hospital-based quality improvement program for the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association. It empowers healthcare provider teams to consistently treat heart and stroke patients according to the most up-to-date guidelines. This program helps to ensure that the care a hospital provides to coronary artery disease, stroke, and heart failure patients is consistent with the most up-to-date, scientific guidelines.

Sherman was recognized for performance achievement, as at least 85 percent of their cardiac or stroke patients (without contraindications) were treated and discharged according to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s guidelines and recommendations. The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s ad recognizes Sherman Hospital’s commitment and success in performance achievement.
