Stroke Care

Baptist Health Care provides world-class service, quality care and patient safety to those who come to us for stroke care. Baptist Health Care continues to receive The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for our stroke program.

To elevate the level of care patients receive, Baptist Health Care voluntarily pursues regular comprehensive, independent evaluations by The Joint Commission. These evaluations provide opportunities to enhance the safety and quality of care we provide. The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of approval is awarded only to organizations that are found to meet or exceed its stringent standards. The Joint Commission is recognized nationwide for inspecting quality and certifying organizations that are committed to meeting its performance standards. The not-for-profit organization accredits and certifies more than 15,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States.

The standards of performance charge Baptist Health Care with maintaining ongoing community education to help people recognize the signs of stroke. Early detection is key to receiving treatments that can lead to recovery. We provide learning opportunities about the symptoms and treatment of stroke through health expos, support group meetings and a variety of special programs. The community is invited to take advantage of free health care screenings at these events.
