Regional West is certified by The Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center.

Treatment in a Primary Stroke Center provides a safer environment, resulting in better patient outcomes.

Research from the American Stroke Association shows that a patient at a Primary Stroke Center receives a higher level of care with fewer complications, spending less time in the hospital and rehabilitation.

We provide certified stroke care 24/7, 365 days a year for stroke patients.

Stroke is treatable if care is received as quickly as possible after onset of symptoms.
