Thanks to the implementation support of Corazon and the processes that our team has been working so diligently to implement, we had our first successful stroke code. We administered t-PA in 56 minutes and the patient responded very well. It was a great showcase of just how far we have come and renewed our team’s excitement about bringing this standard of care to save lives in our community.

Joe Bradley Stroke Coordinator, Tanner Medical Center

We are extremely satisfied with every aspect of our cath lab accreditation project with Corazon. From the prep, to meeting our quick timeline, to the site visit for review, we couldn’t be happier with the results. The entire project was completed quickly and thoroughly, and now our community has evidence of the high quality cardiac care we provide at McLaren Greater Lansing. Corazon's accreditation is a 5-Star service!
