The Methodist Hospitals has received Primary Stroke Certification by the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program, an independent, nationally recognized accreditation authority.
Hospital officials said the facility earned the distinction after HFAP conducted an "extensive and objective review" of the hospital's stroke program.
The HFAP stroke certification program has based its standards on evidence from the Brain Attack Coalition and the American Heart/Stroke Association.
These standards are requirements to provide hospitals with the tools for education and support regarding stroke prevention, care and recovery within their communities, Methodist officials said.
