ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Alexian Brothers Medical Center, Elk Grove Village, IL, and St. Alexius Medical Center, Hoffman Estates, IL, have each received the American Stroke Association's Get With The Guidelines(SM) - Stroke (GWTG-Stroke) Silver Performance Achievement Award.

The award recognizes the commitment of both hospitals -- part of the Alexian Brothers Hospital Network -- to implement a higher standard of stroke care and ensure that stroke patients receive treatment according to nationally accepted standards and recommendations.

"With a stroke, time lost is brain lost, and the GWTG-Stroke Silver Performance Achievement Award addresses the important element of time," said Wende Fedder, RN, MBA Director, Stroke and Neurovascular Center, Alexian Brothers Hospital Network. Alexian Brothers Medical Center and St. Alexius Medical Center developed a comprehensive system for rapid diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients admitted to the emergency department. This includes always being equipped to provide brain-imaging scans, having neurologists available to conduct patient evaluations and using clot-busting medications when appropriate.

To receive the GWTG-Stroke Silver Performance Achievement Award, both Alexian Brothers Medical Center and St. Alexius Medical Center consistently complied for at least one year with the requirements in the GWTG-Stroke program. These include aggressive use of medications like tPA, antithrombotics, anticoagulation therapy, DVT prophylaxis, cholesterol reducing drugs, and smoking cessation. This twelve-month evaluation period is the second in an ongoing self-evaluation by the hospital to continually reach the 85 percent compliance level needed to sustain this award.

"The American Stroke Association commends Alexian Brothers Medical Center and St. Alexius Medical Center for its success in implementing standards of care and protocols," said Lee H. Schwamm, M.D., national Get With
