Awards and Accreditations

Our Commitment

Granville Health System participates in various state and national health performance measures and organizational ranking systems to provide patients the tools needed to make quality healthcare decisions. Process measures are another way to measure quality of care. A process measure determines if a patient was given a needed medicine, treatment, or diagnostic test at the right time. Through extensive research, national guidelines have been established for the recommended care of patients with various medical conditions.

Granville Health System earned the award by meeting specific quality achievement measures for the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients at a set level for a designated period. These measures include evaluation of the proper use of medications and other stroke treatments aligned with the most up-to-date, evidence-based guidelines with the goal of speeding recovery and reducing death and disability for stroke patients. Before discharge, patients should also receive education on managing their health, get a follow-up visit scheduled, as well as other care transition interventions

“Granville Health System is dedicated to improving the quality of care for our stroke patients by implementing the American Heart Association’s Get With The Guidelines-Stroke initiative,” said Director of Emergency Services Danika Davis, MSN, RN, CCRN, CEN. “The tools and resources provided help us track and measure our success in meeting evidenced-based clinical guidelines developed to improve patient outcomes.”

According to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, stroke is the No. 5 cause of death and a leading cause of adult disability in the United States. On average, someone in the U.S. suffers a stroke every 40 seconds and nearly 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year.

“We are pleased to be recognized by the American Heart Association for the care provided to stroke and heart patients as they seek care in the Emergency Department,” said John F. Snow, Granville Health System CEO. “This award is a demonstration of the excellent care provided by our medical staff, nursing staff, and the entire support team at GHS. I am so very proud of the team.”
