Stroke Care

BURBANK, Calif., April 9, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center has received the Gold Seal of Approval(TM) from The Joint Commission for Advanced Primary Stroke Centers, becoming only the third hospital in Los Angeles County to receive this designation.

This distinction follows a recent honor by HealthGrades(R), the nation's leading healthcare ratings company, that ranks Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center among the top 5 percent in the nation for the treatment of stroke.

"I am proud that the Joint Commission has recognized the great work our physicians, nurses and staff are doing to treat and care for stroke patients," said Melvin Belafsky, M.D., a neurologist who is Medical Director of the Providence Saint Joseph Stroke Center. "We are committed to remaining in the forefront in the prevention of stroke, and in the treatment and care of stroke patients."

Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center currently treats more than 500 stroke patients each year. Stroke is the third leading cause of death and the leading cause of serious, long-term disability in the United States.

"Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center demonstrated its stroke care follows national standards and guidelines that can significantly improve outcomes for stroke patients," said Jean E. Range, M.S., RN, C.P.H.Q., executive director, Disease-Specific Care Certification, Joint Commission.

Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center places a major emphasis in treating and preventing stroke and other neurologically-involved disorders. The medical center will soon open the $11 million Neuroscience Unit as part of the Hycy and Howard Hill Neuroscience Institute, only the second of its kind in Los Angeles County and the first in the San Fernando Valley.
