Comprehensive Stroke Center
NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is now certified by the Joint Commission as a Comprehensive Stroke Center, the highest level of stroke certification a hospital can receive. The Joint Commission’s gold seal is awarded to institutions that provide the most advanced stroke care to patients with exceptional, around-the-clock treatment. In order to receive this distinction, NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center has met all of the general eligibility requirements for Disease-Specific Care and Primary Stroke Center certification. There are only approximately 100 Joint Commission Comprehensive Stroke Centers around the country.
