Guthrie Corning Hospital and Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital have received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award. The award recognizes the hospitals’ commitment to ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines based on the latest scientific evidence.
Starting in September, patient admission packages will now include a Personal Health Record (PHR). The PHR is a patient centered health record that helps guide the patient through their care process post discharge and is an important tool to help patients become more actively engaged in their own wellness. This is not a replacement of eGuthrie, but a way to raise awareness about the importance of patients organizing their health information including medications, health conditions and questions related to their care.
Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital has been recognized as a Best Hospital for 2017-18 in Hip and Knee Replacement by U.S. News & World Report.
The annual Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 28th year, are part of U.S. News’ patient portal, designed to help patients make informed decisions about where to receive care for life-threatening conditions or for common elective procedures.
