Jamestown  (JRMC)  The Jamestown Regional Medical Center was recently honored with the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Quality Achievement Award, achieving Silver status.

The award recognizes the hospital’s commitment and success ensuring that stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines based on the latest scientific evidence.

“Rapid-response treatment for stroke offers the most significant chance for recovery. According to Jenna Bredahl, Quality & Risk Manager, “Once a stroke occurs, the goal is to lessen potentially debilitating effects, prevent further damage to the brain and reduce the medical and physical complications following a stroke.”

JRMC is a Level IV Trauma Center designation, meaning the facility always has an advanced-trauma, life support-certified physician and nursing team available.

“Awards like these don’t happen by accident,” said JRMC President & CEO Mike Delfs. “They represent the hard work and dedication of our legendary care teams.”
