Fully certified by the Joint Commission, JFK Medical Center has a specially trained team of experts on hand, including Neuro-Interventional radiologists who deliver immediate, stroke-related treatment.
Spearheading our effort is a precision team of emergency medicine physicians, nurses, neuroradiologists and neurologists who spring into action once paramedics alert the hospital that a stroke patient is en route. They know from experience how critical quick diagnosis and treatment are to saving lives and reducing the debilitating effects of stroke.
Comprehensive Stroke Center
Minimizing delays is a crucial step in improving outcomes with acute stroke therapies, whose efficacy is clearly time dependent. Logistic and human barriers to rapid stroke care can be overcome with a systematic “Stroke Alert Team” approach provided by a structured multi-disciplinary acute stroke response team.
In Palm Beach County, the most advanced interventions are available at JFK Medical Center -- the county's 1st AHCA recognized Comprehensive Stroke Center.
