Additionally, Broward Health North received a Target Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus award. Broward Health Imperial Point in Fort Lauderdale earned a Silver Plus recognition for 2020 for improving patient care and outcomes for stroke patients.
“Broward Health patients have the benefit of a 24/7 Brain Attack Team (BAT), designated stroke units and the passionate care from our multidisciplinary teams,” Andrew Ta, Chief Medical Officer at Broward Health. “The ‘Get With The Guidelines’ distinction underscores the incredible dedication by our caregivers to providing high-quality stroke care for our community.” 
The hospitals obtained these endorsements by meeting specific quality achievement measures for the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients at a set level for a designated period.
