Stroke Program Again Achieves National Certification

 
 
In 2012, Mid Coast Hospital became one of five hospitals in Maine recognized with Advanced Certification for Primary Stroke Centers by the Joint Commission and the American Stroke Association. The Joint Commission surveyors recently visited the hospital to conduct a thorough on-site evaluation of our stroke program and have again confirmed that we are in compliance with the requirements, meeting the high standards of care set forth by the Commission.

The certification indicates that the team at Mid Coast Hospital will provide the highest level of care to ensure the best possible outcome for stroke patients. Our patient-centered program includes acute care, rehabilitation services, and ongoing support.

Given the high incidence of stroke in our region, it is more important than ever to educate our community about the signs and symptoms of stroke and the urgency of getting immediate medical attention.

Mid Coast continues to see as many as 80% of patients not getting to the hospital within the recommended amount of time. Spreading awareness about what to look for and what services are available will help us improve outcomes by getting patients here as quickly as possible.
