Mobile Infirmary earns multiple recognitions from the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association for their stroke program

For the twelfth year in a row, Mobile Infirmary has earned the American Heart Association's GoldPlus Get With The Guidelines® - Stroke quality achievement award for ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines, ultimately leading to more lives saved and reduced disability. They have also earned Target Stroke Honor Roll and Target Type II Diabetes Honor Roll status, along with the Gold Plus status.

This award recognizes the safety, quality, and efficiency of stroke-related diagnoses at Mobile Infirmary and the Infirmary Health Neuroscience Center of Excellence. Mobile Infirmary’s stroke team consists of neurologists, neuro-interventionalists, emergency physicians, nurses, radiologists and other professionals who provide the highest stroke care in the region.

"Mobile Infirmary is truly honored to receive this special recognition," expressed Susan Boudreau, FACHE, President of Mobile Infirmary. "Our staff's unwavering commitment to providing exceptional stroke care sets us apart from others in the region. These awards are a testament to our hospital's outstanding reputation as the top provider of all stroke-related care on the Gulf Coast.”

Mobile Infirmary also received the American Heart Association's Target: Stroke Honor Roll. To qualify for this recognition, Mobile Infirmary met specific criteria that reduce the time between an eligible patient's arrival at the hospital and treatment with the clot-buster alteplase.

In addition, Mobile Infirmary was recognized with The American Heart Association's Target: Type 2 Diabetes Honor Roll. Target: Type 2 Diabetes aims to ensure patients with Type 2 diabetes, who might be at higher risk for complications, receive the most up-to-date, evidence-based care when hospitalized due to stroke.

Bedsole / Rotary Rehabilitation Hospital located at Mobile Infirmary, a team of experts is available to provide better patient outcomes from admission to rehabilitation and discharge.
