This is the latest evidence that directly supports how important it is to have such an accomplished and credentialed regional medical center in the Atlantic City, New Jersey area.

The AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center City and Mainland campuses have each earned Comprehensive & Primary Stroke Center certifications, respectively, again.

The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval® and the American Heart Association/ American Stroke Association Heart-Check mark for Comprehensive Stroke Center Certification.

This is the fourth consecutive time that they have earned certification, which reflects a commitment to providing safe, quality care for patients.

We recently reported more AtlantiCare good news when the Joint Commission's recertification of ARMC's Mainland Campus in Pomona, NJ as a Primary Stroke Center in 2022.

AtlantiCare has earned this designation eight consecutive times since 2008.

"Earning this certification demonstrates our experienced team's dedication to saving brains and lives," said David Stidd, M.D., MS, endovascular neurosurgeon and co-medical director, AtlantiCare Stroke Program. Our Acute Stroke Team and our broader AtlantiCare team provide the most advanced, comprehensive care to diagnose and treat the most complex strokes. They do so 24/7, from the scene of a patient's stroke to well beyond the patient's discharge from the hospital."

"Comprehensive Stroke Center Certification recognizes health care organizations committed to fostering continuous improvement in patient safety and quality of care," said Deborah Ryan, MS, RN, interim executive vice president, Accreditation and Certification Operations, The Joint Commission.

"We commend ARMC for using certification to reduce variation in its clinical processes and to strengthen its program structure and management framework for stroke patients,” said Ryan.

"We congratulate ARMC for this outstanding achievement," said Nancy Brown, chief executive officer, the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. "This certification reflects its commitment to providing the highest quality of care for stroke patients,” said Brown.
