Our neuroscience programs consistently garner acclaim year after year. In 2010, Methodist Hospitals earned Primary Stroke Center Certification by the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP), a nationally-recognized organization that has been accrediting healthcare facilities for more than 60 years. Methodist Hospitals was again awarded recertification by HFAP in 2014. HFAP awards this certification after an extensive review of Methodist Hospitals’ capabilities in stroke care. Stroke is the third leading cause of death in America and the leading cause of adult disability. Providing patients who have suffered a stroke with a continuum of care that is prompt and effective has significant positive impact on the quality of their lives in the future.

In 2015, Methodist Hospitals has once again received the Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold-Plus Quality Achievement Award for implementing specific quality improvement measures outlined by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association for the treatment of stroke patients.

Methodist is the first Northwest Indiana hospital to receive this award.

Methodist earned the award by meeting specific quality achievement measures for the rapid diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients at a set level for a designated period. These measures include aggressive use of medications and risk-reduction therapies aimed at reducing death and disability and improving the lives of stroke patients.

We have also achieved a Multiple Sclerosis Center Designation by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. And in 2013, U.S. News & World Report recognized Methodist Hospitals 13th overall out of 175 hospitals in the state for Neurology and Neurosurgery.
