St.Alexius Recertified as Primary Stroke Center

Posted: Updated:

St. Alexius Medical Center was recertified as a Primary Stroke Center, following an on-site review in May. 

"St. Alexius Medical Center is thoroughly committed to providing our patients the highest quality stroke care centered on current scientific research to ensure continued improvement in treatment," says Gary P. Miller, St. Alexius' president and CEO. "In addition to The Joint Commission accreditation, the Primary Stroke Center Certification gives us the opportunity to highlight the exceptional stroke care we provide for our patients and help us improve care overall for our community."

Developed in collaboration with the American Stroke Association and launched in 2003, The Joint Commission's Primary Stroke Center Certification program is based on the Brain Attack Coalition's "Recommendations for the Establishment of Primary Stroke Centers." Certification is available only to stroke programs in Joint Commission-accredited, acute care hospitals.
