Gold Medal Care at Cone Health

Treating people based on the latest research means better results when it comes to strokes.  

 

Cone Health recently received several awards from the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association for applying the latest stroke and atrial fibrillation (AFib) treatments to improve patient care and patient results. AFib is an irregular heartbeat that increases the risk of strokes. 

Last year, Cone Health treated 2,261 people for stroke. Strokes are the fifth leading cause of death in North Carolina and the number one cause of disability. 

Hospitals use treatment guidelines in caring for patients. Guidelines change as research uncovers better and more effective ways of caring for patients. The American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association recognizes hospitals for their ability to quickly adopt the latest information for treating strokes and AFib. Several Cone Health hospitals were recognized.
