Stroke program recertified
The Comprehensive Stroke Program at the Shands Jacksonville Neuroscience Institute has been recertified by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. The recertification was awarded following a survey by the commission that recognized physicians, clinical staff and administrators for their excellence in care. UF&Shands Jacksonville is at the forefront of stroke awareness and treatment, providing comprehensive inpatient and outpatient services for the diagnosis, management and rehabilitation of stroke patients. Shands Jacksonville’s Comprehensive Stroke Program first received the Gold Seal of Approval from the Joint Commission in 2004. And in 2006, it became the first stroke program in North Florida to receive accreditation as a Comprehensive Stroke Center from the Agency for Health Care Administration.
