It is a matter of great honor to be awarded Diamond status for Brain Stroke Management by the World Stroke Organisation. The achievement has been a milestone in our journey and our doctors have been relentlessly working towards providing the best services to the patients.
The ‘WSO Angels Awards’ are conferred quarterly and aim to provide practical support to improve stroke care globally, recognize and promote best practices in stroke care and share key learning around the implementation of quality stroke care. The award (consisting of a gold, platinum, and diamond category) recognizes hospitals that have demonstrated a clear commitment to quality stroke care and have established cultures and systems to support continuous improvement.
“Stroke is the second leading cause of death and disability worldwide and is responsible for 116 million years of healthy life lost each year. The impact on individuals, families, and society is incalculable. Jehangir Hospital is committed to improving outcomes for stroke, by ensuring that patients get access to stroke care that optimizes their survival and recovery. Achieving our vision of comprehensive management of stroke, we aim to deliver continuous enhancements in prevention, treatment, and support to reduce the burden of stroke from the society,” said Mr. Vinod Sawantwadkar, CEO, Jehangir Hospital.

In addition to the Award, participating professionals and Institutions in the Angels community will be supported to convene and connect, to identify good practices, and to share the learning that will help them implement and accelerate improvements for patients.
“The Diamond award to Jehangir Hospital awarded by World Stroke Organisation (WSO) is a result of consistent quality care of stroke patients presenting in the Emergency Room.
