ROSWELL, Ga. — The Partnership for Health and Accountability (PHA) presented its Quality and Patient Safety Award to North Fulton Hospital in Roswell for its project that improved stroke care.

The project, titled "Time is Brain: Multidisciplinary Approach to the Emergency Care of the Stroke Patient," won third place in the hospitals with 100 to 299 beds category.

These annual awards recognize Georgia health care organizations for achievement in reducing the risk of medical errors and improving patient safety and medical outcomes.

North Fulton's project improved the efficiency of the hospital's stroke program and treatment of ischemic strokes, which occur as the result of an obstruction in a blood vessel supplying blood to the brain.
