CENTENNIAL HILLS HOSPITAL GAINS CERTIFICATION AS PRIMARY STROKE CENTER
Centennial Hills Hospital & Medical Center has been certified by the Joint Commission for Primary Stroke Centers as an advanced primary stroke center following an on-site review in March .
The certification arrived just in time for May Stroke Awareness Month and serves as part of the commission’s Disease-Specific Care Certification to recognize facilities that make exceptional efforts to foster better stroke care.
“Our patients can rely on us to deliver the highest level of stroke care, from their arrival at the emergency department through discharge planning to an acute rehabilitation center, their home or other facility ,” said Sajit Pullarkat, CEO/ managing director of Centennial Hills Hospital.
“New advancements are helping provide better outcomes when patients seek help quickly ,” said Paul Janda, stroke medical director for Centennial Hills Hospital. “For example, the clot-busting drug tPA is often successful in minimizing or reducing the effects of stroke if administered within three hours of the onset of symptoms. The longer you wait to seek treatment, the greater the potential damage to your brain, which could lead to a longer recovery process.”
