Clinical Excellence

Bellin Health is a Primary Stroke Center as certified by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).

The Joint Commission's Certificate of Distinction for Primary Stroke Centers recognizes centers that make exceptional efforts to foster better outcomes for stroke care. Our achievement of certification signifies that the services we provide have the critical elements to achieve long-term success in improving outcomes. It is the best signal to your community that our quality care is effectively managed to meet the unique and specialized needs of stroke patients.

The Joint Commission's Primary Stroke Center Certification program was developed in collaboration with the American Stroke Association. It is based on the Brain Attack Coalition's "Recommendations for the Establishment of Primary Stroke Centers."

Bellin Health’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit has also passed the survey given by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). This survey examines programming and service offerings, as well as adherence to regulatory and patient safety standards.
