This approval demonstrates the hospital’s commitment to meeting rigorous standards of care for stroke patients, an announcement from the hospital said.

A Joint Commission certification team evaluated Sharon Hospital’s stroke program including diagnostic and treatment protocols, support services for patients and caregivers, and continuous clinical performance improvement measures. The independent reviewers determined that the hospital consistently achieves standards of care — such as safety, time to treat and patient education upon discharge from hospital — resulting in improved outcomes for stroke patients, the announcement said.
