According to Nguyen Huy Thang, chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City Stroke Association and head of the cerebrovascular diseases department at the People’s Hospital 115, in order to achieve Diamond Status, the hospital has successfully met a range of strict criteria. One of the criteria is that 75% of patients have been treated with recanalization therapy within an hour of admission.

Thang said the Cerebrovascular Ward of the hospital has treated approximately 13,000 stroke patients. More importantly, the hospital has also been able to reduce the average length of stay for patients, going from 5.88 days in 2016 to 4.03 days in 2020. This reduction in treatment time for stroke patients has proved the hospital’s effective treatment procedures.
