San Joaquin Community Hospital (SJCH) recently received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association's Get With The Guidelines ® Stroke Gold Plus Performance Achievement Award. The award recognizes SJCH's commitment and success in implementing excellent care for stroke patients according to evidence-based guidelines.
