Primary Stroke Center Designation
Date: September 3, 2012
If you or a loved one suffered from a stroke, would you know where to go? Being cared for at an accredited stroke center could impact your recovery.
Johns Hopkins Bayview is designated by the Maryland Institute for Emergency Services Systems (MIEMMS) and The Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center. This means that the Medical Center has the appropriate resources and procedures in place to best take care of stroke patients and minimize the damage of stroke.
“Johns Hopkins Bayview has a spectacular multidisciplinary approach to the care of stroke patients,” says Rafael Llinas, M.D., director, Johns Hopkins Bayview Stroke Center. “Our outcomes show great consistency in treatment and attention to detail. We not only do an expert job in the acute setting, but also offer rehabilitation services and all other components of care."
