Abington Memorial Hospital attains elite status of Comprehensive Stroke Center

Abington Neurological Associates physicians helped Abington Memorial Hospital to become designated a Comprehensive Stroke Center – a certification earned by fewer than 1 percent of hospitals nationwide. This stroke center, known as the Diamond Stroke Center, was named after one of ANA’s founders, Dr. B. Franklin Diamond, MD.

As the first Pennsylvania stroke center to earn the highly regarded Gold Seal of Approval from the Joint Commission, AMH consistently earns awards that distinguish itself in the Philadelphia region for its stroke services. These honors include the American Stroke Association/American Heart Association’s Gold Plus Performance Achievement Award for stroke quality-of-care.

Dr. Dan Gzesh is proud to serve as the director of the Diamond Stroke Center.
