Joint Commission Certified Stroke Centers

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.

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 State Department of Health (DOH). For this reason, if a hospital is not listed on the Joint Commission's updated list of primary stroke centers, accreditation may be through the State Department of Health.

Some of the criteria include diagnostic facilities, advanced imaging technology, accessibility to the most advanced stroke treatment, ability to administer IV TPA or intrarterial thrombolysis.

There are 3 types of stroke certification programs, which include:

Acute Stroke Ready Hospital

Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center

Primary Stroke Center

Here a list of Joint Commission-stroke certified hospitals. As of January January 16, 2017 this list includes a total of 1248 health care systems around the United States.

A Word From Verywell

A stroke is known to be one of the most challenging medical emergencies. Advances in stroke care have led to substantially better outcomes than in  the past. Your stroke care team includes specialized doctors, nurses and therapists, as well as emergency professionals who can quickly decide which hospital is best suited for your immediate care. Stroke patients who are taken to the nearest hospital are able to get with the most updated and advanced care, sometimes with the assistance of telemedicine technology.

There are also newer advances in urgent stroke care, such as mobile stroke units, which are currently available a few locations in the United States. Political action is taking place to make emergency stroke care more available for more people.
