Quality Care Means Better Outcomes

When a patient arrives at John Randolph Medical Center with stroke symptoms, we activate a special Code Neuro, speeding up diagnosis and treatment and improving the chance for a full recovery. Our treatment often includes new clot-busting drugs that have dramatic results if given within the first three hours of the onset of stroke symptoms.

Our stroke treatment experts recognize that every stroke patient has unique and specialized needs. Our goal is to achieve long-term success in improving stroke outcomes.

What is an Accredited Stroke Center?

Our Primary Stroke Center accreditation is more than a certificate on a wall. It's a designation by The Joint Commission, an independent not-for-profit organization that accredits and certifies healthcare organizations in the United States with the mission to continuously improve healthcare for the public. This designation recognizes healthcare organizations like ours that make exceptional efforts to produce better outcomes for stroke care.
