Primary Stroke Centers

 

Act 54 of 2012, which went into effect on July 28, 2012, creates a method of identifying acute care hospitals as Primary Stroke Centers, a designation which will last as long as the hospital remains certified as such, unless suspended or revoked by the Department of Health.

A hospital seeking recognition as a Primary Stroke Center must submit an application.  See the first link below for the application and more details on the requirements.  The second link provides a list of Primary Stroke Centers which are currently accredited.

The last link takes you to a Primary Stroke Center Notice that explains details of Act 54, the process of applying for this designation and information for persons with a disability who may need this document in an alternative format such as Braille, large print, audiotape, etc.
