Stroke Center Outcomes

Maimonides Medical Center Stroke Program Mission and Vision

  • Continue to provide the highest quality care possible to reduce stroke death and disability.
  • Educate and motivate our patients and community about stroke awareness, prevention, and to seek support for stroke survivors. 

To support our mission and vision, the Stroke Program uses quality metrics for continuous improvement of stroke care.

Maimonides 2018

Stroke patients who were given an antithrombotic (for example, aspirin) at discharge.


% of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) patients receiving nimodipine within the first 24 hours of admission. Evidence shows that nimodipine reduces neurological problems after SAH and has been shown to improve overall outcomes.


% of patients diagnosed with an irregular heart beat (atrial fibrillation/flutter) who were prescribed anticoagulation (‘blood thinning’) medication at hospital discharge.


% of patients who obtained TICI 2B/3 recanalization (more than half or complete filling of the blocked artery). A grade of TICI 2B or higher means successful brain reperfusion and is associated with positive outcomes.
