Northside Hospital-Cherokee has been awarded a full two-year Advanced Certification for Primary Stroke Centers by The Joint Commission (TJC) for a third consecutive survey period. The hospital received the recognition after undergoing an on-site evaluation and demonstrating compliance with nationally developed standards for stroke care.
Northside Hospital-Cherokee also received TJC certification for its hip and knee joint replacement and pneumonia care services. Northside Hospital-Cherokee, along with Northside Hospital in Atlanta and Forsyth, remain the only Georgia hospitals to have TJC certification in pneumonia care.
“These continued recognitions by The Joint Commission demonstrate the high level of care and compassion that our employees and physicians provide to our patients every day,” said Billy Hayes, CEO, Northside Hospital-Cherokee. “I couldn’t be more proud of their commitment and hard work.”
