ER Primary Stroke Center
St. Mary’s Primary Stroke Center is the only program of its type in the Tri-State with a disease-specific certification from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. The center provides immediate care for patients with stroke symptoms, which can help reduce the effects and risk of long-term disability. When a patient arrives in St. Mary’s Emergency Room with stroke symptoms, a “stroke alert” is called and the stroke team organizes. These highly trained professionals are dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of strokes.
