Rochester General Hospital Awarded for Stroke Care

July 01, 2015

Rochester General Hospital has been selected by the Women’s Choice Awards as one of the Top 50 hospitals for stroke care.

The Women’s Choice Awards was created by Medelia Inc., an organization that was founded by Delia Passi, former publisher of Working Mother magazine. Medelia works with Fortune 500 companies to support their efforts to increase sales and loyalty among women.

Rochester General was one of two hospitals recognized in the state. The rating comes from a variety of performance metrics including: accreditation from the Joint Commission, patient satisfaction scores and the American Heart Association’s Get with the Guidelines performance measures.
“We’re very proud of the team that has made this possible,” said Brian Bixler, director of the neurosciences program at Rochester General Hospital. “This award is the culmination of hard work and collaboration across many departments to provide the best care to these patients and increase their chances for a positive outcome.”
