Joint Commission Certified Stroke Centers by State

Alabama to Idaho

Photo � A.D.A.M.

Primary stroke centers are hospitals which have been certified by the Joint Commission as centers that comply with the latest hospital guidelines for the treatment of stroke.

You should know that in some states, primary stroke centers can become certified through other agencies outside of the Joint Commission. For instance, some states offer certification through the Department of Health (DOH). For this reason, when a given hospital does not show up on the Joint Commission's updated list of primary stroke centers, check with your state's DOH to see if they offer alternate ways of certification.

Here a list of Joint Commission-certified hospitals in each state, listed in alphabetical order. As of April 4th, 2008, this list includes a total of 455 organizations and 620 hospitals around the United States.

For the most up-to-date list of stroke centers in your state, go to the Joint Commission's website.
