Medical Center for its success in implementing standards of care and protocols," said Lee H. Schwamm, M.D., national Get With the Guidelines Steering Committee Member and director of acute stroke services at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. "The full implementation of acute care and secondary prevention recommendations and guidelines is a critical step in saving the lives and improving outcomes of stroke patients."

GWTG-Stroke uses the "teachable moment," the time soon after a patient has had a stroke, when they are most likely to listen to and follow their healthcare professionals' guidance. Studies demonstrate that patients who are taught how to manage their risk factors while still in the hospital reduce their risk of a second heart attack or stroke. Through GWTG-Stroke, customized patient education materials are made available at the point of discharge, based on patients' individual risk profiles. The take-away materials are written in an easy-to-understand format and are available in English and Spanish. In addition, the GWTG Patient Management Tool provides access to up-to-date cardiovascular and stroke science at the point of care.

"The time is right for Alexian Brothers Medical Center and St. Alexius Medical Center to focus on improving the quality of stroke care by implementing GWTG-Stroke," said Fedder. "The number of acute ischemic stroke patients eligible for treatment is expected to grow over the next decade due to increasing stroke incidence and a large aging population. St. Alexius Medical Center was the first community hospital in Illinois to receive a Get With the Guidelines Quality award for stroke in 2005. We now have the honor of receiving the next level of the Get With the Guidelines award at the Silver level at both Alexian Brothers Medical Center and St. Alexius Medical Center."

According to the American Stroke Association, each year approximately 700,000 people suffer a stroke -- 500,000 are first attacks and 200
