Time. It's the Most Important Factor When You're Having a Stroke

April 01, 2013

How quickly you receive a diagnosis and treatment can make the difference in how fast, and how well, you rebound from the devastating effects of stroke.

All five Providence Medical Centers provide emergency room treatment and rehabilitation services that follow national guidelines and standards for stroke care — standards proven to significantly improve outcomes for stroke patients.

That dedication to quality has been recognized with the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s “Get with the Guidelines” stroke quality achievement awards. And all five hospitals have also received certification from The Joint Commission as Advanced Primary Stroke Centers, placing us among the top 5% in the nation for stroke treatment.
