The American Heart Association with the Joint Commission collaborate to provide hospitals Acute Stroke Ready Certification, Primary Stroke Certification, Thrombectomy-Capable Stroke Certification, and Comprehensive Stroke Certification to qualifying hospitals. The collaboration has recently been expanded to provide cardiac certifications including Comprehensive Cardiac Center Certification, Advanced Certification for Heart Failure, Acute Heart Attack Ready Certification, and Primary Heart Attack Center Certification. 

AHA also provides Hypertension Center Certifications for physician practices and has recently expanded its portfolio to offer certification programs for Post-Acute Care facilities. The use of the Heart-Check mark for certification programs allow providers to communicate their recognition by the American Heart Association to patients and caregivers.
