WakeMed Cary Hospital and WakeMed Raleigh Campus are both certified as primary stroke centers by the Joint Commission. As a certified stroke center, WakeMed has proven that it provides quality care to stroke patients and follows national standards and guidelines that can significantly improve outcomes for stroke patients. The WakeMed stroke team is made up of specially trained physicians, nurses and therapists who are dedicated to the care of stroke patients.
Every hospital in the United States submits data on specific measures to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, including for stroke care. Since every hospital across the country submits the data on the same measures, consumers can easily compare the quality of services provided at different hospitals on CMS' Hospital Compare website. At WakeMed, it is our goal to always be in the top 10 percent of hospitals.
For your convenience, following find WakeMed's performance on these measures. You may notice a difference between the data that is posted on CMS' Hospital Compare website and the WakeMed website. This is because the data on Hospital Compare is almost a year old by the time it is posted. This is due to the amount of time it takes for the data to be collected and submitted by hospitals and then validated by CMS.
Data represents a rolling year from April 1, 2014 through March 31, 2015
