Makati Medical Center (MakatiMed) was recently certified as an Acute Stroke Ready Hospital (ASRH) by the Stroke Society of the Philippines (SSP). The certification recognizes hospitals that can provide immediate and time-critical care to stroke patients.
MakatiMed was awarded the highest certification of Tier 3, which is valid for five years from May 1, 2023 to April 30, 2028. As an ASRH-certified hospital, it will receive priority in training and guidance from the SSP committee, and recognition as an institution that delivers quality healthcare to stroke patients. Additionally, MakatiMed is in turn expected to commit to providing immediate and time-critical care to stroke patients by further improving its staff’s knowledge and skills.
With this certification, MakatiMed is better equipped to serve its patients in need and to address the growing incidence of stroke in the Philippines. This also demonstrates the hospital’s commitment to continuous advancement and ongoing education to enhance its stroke services.
