Harrison Medical Center is dedicated to providing the highest quality care and service to our patients. We rigorously monitor and report performance data to assist us in improving the quality of care we provide to patients. Our cardiovascular data is compared to other organizations on a state and national level. Much of this data is publicly reported so our progress in meeting our quality vision goals for world-class care can be viewed by our patients and community. To view publically reported data, see COAP (Clinical Outcomes Assesment Program).
Get With The Guidelines® Stroke is a program that helps hospitals follow the most recent American Heart Association/American Stroke Association scientific guidelines for patient treatment.

We are pleased to announce that Harrison's coordinated program of identifying and treating stroke patients earned the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association's Get with the Guidelines® Silver Plus Quality Achievement Award for 2013. Our commitment and success sets a higher standard, ensuring you receive exceptional care right here in your own community.
