Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare Awarded for Efforts to Improve Rural Stroke Care

Clinton, MO. – (July 20, 2023) – Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare (GVMH) is pleased to announce that it has earned The American Heart Association’s Get With The Guidelines® Stroke Rural Recognition Bronze Award.

The Stroke Rural Recognition Bronze Award recognizes healthcare organizations for their efforts to optimize stroke care and eliminate rural healthcare outcome disparities.

“We are proud to be recognized for the important work we do every day to improve the lives of patients who are affected by stroke, giving them the best possible chance of recovery and survival,” said Craig Thompson, CEO at GVMH. “Being in a rural community, we deal with characteristics, such as extended interfacility transportation times and limited staffing resources. We have made it a goal to make sure those hurdles do not affect the standard of care our stroke patients receive.”
